"The revelation of the evening turned out to be Mary Anne Stanislaw as the King's head wife Lady Thiang. A confident, unassuming presence on stage, she shows her authority as a person to be reckoned with though not unkind. When she sings this European trained dramatic mezzo-soprano fills the theatre with thrilling vocal power."

"MaryAnne Stanislaw has a sonorous mezzo soprano voice and she soared as the old gypsy’s daughter, Azucena. Heroically climbing through Verdi’s elaborate passagework, she rode each note like a towering bonfire – truly lighting up an already thrilling production. Bravo presentation of a Verdi classic."

- Russell Norman, vocal coach and accompanist
