"...Soeur Constance chanté de manière lunineuse par Capucine Daumas...", "...Sa voix pure et flûtée..."
Hire Capucine Daumas ›
«La Sœur Constance emprunte sa gaieté à Capucine Daumas qui exprime à merveille, jusque dans la mort, la joie de vivre insubmersible de son personnage. Sa voix pure et flûtée, son sourire radieux ou encore ses moues désolées lorsqu’elle constate la douleur de Blanche caractérisent à merveille la jeune novice. La chanteuse s’acquitte en outre parfaitement des difficultés rythmiques de sa partition.»
Olyrix by Damien Dutilleul (2017)
«le personnage de Soeur Constance, chanté de manière lumineuse par Capucine Daumas évacue toute minauderie ou excitation factice, rendant à cette toute jeune fille sa fraîcheur enfantine et la candeur de sa foi. (...) Rarement les tempéraments de toutes ces figures ont été aussi bien exprimés par des voix également soucieuses de la diction de la langue française, de l'articulation impeccable des paroles.»
forum Opera by Fabrice malkany (2017)
«Fraiche comme une rose, la Constance de la jeune Capucine Daumas se révèle à croquer, joyeuse et spontanée, à la voix aussi limpide que le jeu»
