Lydia Rose Eiche is a worthy Pamina for our prince, a mighty voice emanating from her petite frame.
While the whole company is asked to play many roles, character actors Simon Earle and Lydia Eiche take the cake. The duo juggles accessories and dialects, swapping role upon role and sometimes, with no break between… The result is comedic to a tee.
As the bride Milica, Lydia Rose Eiche was not only the center of attention for the entire opera, she was also the only one to have an extended solo during the ‘Farewell’ section, which she handled with aplomb. Her clear, rich voice expressed the melancholy and insecurity of a woman who was about to leave all she has known to start a new life.
