INO Cosi fan tutte May/June 2023

Aaaaaand we’re open!


Irish Times : “captivating singing, sparky music and superb comic timing”

Bachtrack : “Sharon Carty was equally impressive as Dorabella. Here too, the acting was thoroughly convincing. Notably more flighty and flirty from the get go, her capitulation and her encouragement of her sister’s was impeccably done. Her control and pearly tone shone out many the time as evinced by her top B flat in her aria “È amore un ladroncello”.

Irish Examiner : Cosi fan Tutte puts women at the heart of Mozart's classic”  

Golden Plec : “as her sister Dorabella, Sharon Carty sings fabulously, clearly embracing this role with enjoyable verve, impassioned in Smanie implacabile [‘Implacable longings’]. She is warmly expressive in the duet Il core vi dono [‘I give you this heart’] with Russell, one of the most extraordinary moments of the opera, with words and music creating magic before our eyes.”

No more workhorse : The six principal roles on the night were all superbly played by Irish singers.”

Opera Chaser : “Sharon Carty’s dynamically charged vocal expressivity as Dorabella”

Irish Independent : Singing throughout is a joy”

OperaJournal : “Anna Devin and Sharon Carty were everything you could hope for as Fiordiligi and Dorabella, their delivery bright and sparkling, filled with emotional sentiments”

“Sesto’s Hamlet-like torment, and furious determination to turn himself from boy to pitiless avenger, was likewise brilliantly got over in Sharon Carty’s great performance, fighting with fear and indecision with concentrated, undemonstrative actorly art.”


“Cornelia and Sesto brought a real emotional heart to things with centred, rock-solid performances. “

(Opera Now)

 “Particularly powerful are the scenes between mezzos, Carolyn Holt as Cornelia and Sharon Carty as Sesto.“

(Irish Examiner)

“…the brighter tones of the marvellous Sharon Carty as her son Sesto, style-perfect.”

(The Arts Desk)

“..Sharon Carty (mezzo-soprano) as the vengeful Sesto, likewise deliver full blooded and nuanced performances.”
