«"...but by far the most impressive performance of the evening came from Cátia Moreso as Madame de Croissy, the old Prioress. Her death scene was not only moving, but sung with an amazing depth of feeling and Moreso possesses a full, rich mezzo-soprano voice which not only did this role justice but augurs well for an exciting professional career, which surely beckons."»
