I Puritani in the ABAO Bilbao season

Manuel Cabrera - Beckmesser
20 October 2022
It was a night not to be forgotten! The Bristol soprano moved us with the brightness of her voice, leading it into the lands of the clearest high notes, overwhelming us with the sweetest pianissimi, spinning her voice in such way that it would nail on the spot even the last row of the hall. How is it even possible to modulate the sound in such a grandiose way and with such sweet expressiveness?

Two artists for bel canto

Nino Dentici - El Correo

[Jessica Pratt] always sounded comfortable in the midst of danger, at ease in the difficulties, while decorating her "mad scene" with a range of embellishments that only her skill allows. To such flexibility and technique add the purity of her voice and an endless legato.

ABAO opens its season with 'I Puritani' by Bellini, with the voices of Jessica Pratt and Xabier Anduaga

Alejandro Martínez - Platea Magazine
17 October 2022
Exemplary Jessica Pratt in one of her specialties, the role of Elvira, that she sings with amazing ease and with an air of naturalness that is contagious for the rest of the cast. Not only does she deftly resolve the thousand belcanto watermarks (staccati, interpolated high notes, octave jumps) but she also convinces in the most dramatic and expressive parts of the role (O rendetemi la speme... Qui la voce sua soave), with a range of ample phrasings.

Tenor Xabier Anduaga wins at home

Jessica Pratt reaffirms her technical mastery in a Bellini opera of 'criminal' high notes Jessica Pratt, much loved among ABAO fans, [...] does not lower her engine at any time. She is flushed, hysterical, and in agony in all three acts. [...] The second act is almost entirely a mad scene that drives all the singers to pieces. But not her. Pratt ends in one piece, with spare energy to culminate a third act that is also very tense, with a duet that swings from joy to doubt and fainting.

Jessica Pratt: What I know about men

Jane Rocca - The Sydney Morning Herald
01 July 2018
Our house was always noisy and messy. Mum and Dad loved to host big dinners and Mum would take in anybody who needed help. When I was 11, our family moved to Australia from Bristol [England] to be closer to my maternal grandmother, who was already living here. Moving halfway across the world was rather traumatic for me and my siblings [brother Daniel, 39, and sister Gemma, 34]. We bonded because it really felt like us versus the world. We moved houses five times – from Toowoomba to Brisbane and then Sydney – before I decided to move to Italy 15 years ago to pursue opera.

What would you do to make a difference in the world? I think that the arts are extremely important today as we live in a world in which individuals become more connected but more isolated everyday. When people come to a live show they get to experience something as a group, it fosters a sense of community and empathy and I think that is a small way that we as artists can make a difference in the world.
