Sharon Carty Mezzo-soprano

“Orfeo ed Euridice: An opera of intense, crisp energy….

…Mezzo-soprano Sharon Carty takes full possession of Orfeo’s wide range of emotions” Michael Dungan, The Irish Times

“Her performance is compelling, both vocally and dramatically. There is a smooth depth to her sound, as if this role has brought out an aspect of her voice that we’ve not had the chance to hear before. Always intelligent, her vocal ornaments are excellent, but more vitally she brings an openness to her sense of Orfeo as a character, a figure in the process of finding himself (or herself?) through grief.”  Michael Lee, Golden Plec
