"The saving grace of the production was that the cast, Flora McIntosh and Alice Privett in particular, were well able to bring out the lyrical beauty of Bellini's music." - Planet Hugill, I Capuleti e i Montecchi
"Alice Privett’s Giulietta leads the race by a mile. She masters her vocal with a skill that highlights the colours of the music." - A Younger Theatre, I Capuleti e i Montecchi
"McIntosh and Privett make a power-team that celebrates the impressive female voice." - A Younger Theatre, I Capuleti e i Montecchi
"Giulietta, sung by Alice Privett, is just as impressive, capturing the demands of Bellini’s long ornamented lines with real style." - Plays to see, I Capuleti e i Montecchi
