Sharon Carty Mezzo-soprano

Dinner at Eight (William Bolcom/Mark Campbell)

Wexford Festival Opera 2018

“The cast is mostly that of the original Minnesota Opera production, with some roles taken by Irish or British singers, among whom Irish mezzo-soprano Sharon Carty (the betrayed wife Lucy Talbot) stands out.” (Bachtrack)

“Carty essayed the role with great skill, highlighting the ambiguities in Lucy’s character – her internal feelings are far from the cold exterior she presents to the word. In her aria, accompanied by the sultry sound of the orchestra, Carty’s subtle shading and carefully accented vocal line brought depth and ambiguity to her character, exposing the conflict between the straight-laced woman she likes to present, and the dissatisfied and sexually unfulfilled woman she really feels herself to be. Moreover, it was sung with a precise and clear diction. Her acting was also beautifully nuanced.” (Operawire)

“Sharon Carty, la femme trompée, en possession de moyens vocaux conséquents”
