Soprano Jessica Pratt (highly acclaimed with a resounding stamping of feet, here considered a symbol of triumph) and tenor Celso Albelo have been the protagonists of this Finnish transfer of I Puritani.

Opera I Puritani bewitches the audience

Mikko OjajÀrvi - Savonmaa
02 August 2017
Similar story to Romeo and Juliette with the difference that Elvira of the Puritans (il soprano Jessica Pratt) and Arturo (il tenore Celso Albelo) survive in the end. The Olavinlinna audience was stunned by the opera and above all by Jessica Pratt. She sang like a nightingale, long phrases and apparently without any effort.

Belcanto, hypnotic beauty

Jan Granberg - HBL
02 August 2017
The madness scene was once the emotional culmination of the romantic operas. There's three of them in I Puritani, among the most beautiful of the genre. Here in this production the protagonist, Elvira, runs around with a shining crescent in her arms. Jessica Pratt played enthusiastically and was brilliant both in the delicate and the virtuoso music.

'I Puritani' conquer Savonlinna

P. UNAMUNO - El Mundo
02 August 2017
The Canary Islands tenor Celso Albelo and the British soprano Jessica Pratt collected the greatest ovations for their interpretation of the protagonists of the love drama between Arturo and Elvira in the context of the civil war between the Puritans who supported Cromwell and the monarchists for the Stuarts.

The Madrileni Puritan elevate Belcanto to intoxicating heights

Hannu-Ilari Lampila - Helsingin Sanomat
02 August 2017
Jessica Pratt shined in the female part of the Puritians as the center of all emotions. ... The english soprano Jessica Pratt is a top level, exhilarating and passionate Elvira. Ardent with joy and heartbreaking when hit by sorrow. The famous and spectacular mad scene lasts for almost half an hour. The bright and radiant Jessica Pratt has an extraordinary ability to project on the long range, ecstatic coloratura and delicate temperament. Elvira is not alone. In this as in other scenes, the chorus is actively involved in an collective emotional resonance chamber. When the empathy from chorus and orchestra support the passion of the soloist, the spell of the show raises to intoxicating heights.

Opera review: Jessica Pratt dazzles with her singing

Riitta-Leena Lempinen-Vesa - OOpera
01 August 2017
Similarly high is the vocal level. Jessica Pratt is a world-class coloratura soprano with powerful notes and a natural vibrato. Very high quality of sound on both high and dramatically low notes. The protagonists depict love and madness, the audience holds their breath at every vocal virtuosity. 
 Pratt is also a great actress and a brilliant performer.

RIGOLETTO - directed by Ivo Guerra

Federica Fanizza - Sipario
14 July 2017
The undisputed star of the evening was Jessica Pratt's Gilda, a role that she has consolidated and refined in her international career, after her debut in Italy in 2007 with the As.Li.Co circuit. Her Gilda is free from childish gestures, she defines a mature character, conscious of her actions. Here in the Arena she underlined more the lyrical and intimate aspect of the character with a clear and smooth singing line. We can forgive her embellishment in "Caro Nome" but she has been able to calibrate voice and breath to make herself heard on the highest seats of the arena; In the touching confession of "Tutte le feste al tempio", Pratt showed all her true soprano nature with the accurate use of her vocal means. And as always as in the style of the artist, she's been leading in ensembles as in the scene of the third act.

ARENA DI VERONA 2017: RIGOLETTO (WITH JESSICA PRATT AND FRANCESCO DEMURO)

Francesco Lodola e Stefano de Ceglia - Ieri, Oggi, Domani, Opera
09 July 2017
Jessica Pratt returned to the Arena with one of her most significant roles, Gilda. And she was a wonderful protagonist: full of rush and emotions. She is capable of supporting both the coloratura (with a gorgeous "Caro Nome") and the dramatic side of the character. What comes out is a fresh, vocally impeccable, portrait. The soprano, famous for the perfection of her high range, performed a series of "puntature", one more beautiful than the other, as the one in the finale of the tempest scene, brilliant for it's focus and precision.

Verona, Arena Opera Festival 2017 - Pratt and Demuro in Rigoletto

Fabio Larovere - Connessi all'Opera
09 July 2017
Jessica Pratt faced with security and determination the role of the naive daughter of the jester, underlining her character and determination, especially when she decides to sacrifice herself for the beloved one. The excellent "belcantista" did not fail to impeccably embroider her aria "Caro nome", executed with all the appropriate "putanture".

Great and well-deserved success for the replica of Giuseppe Verdi's 'best work'

Simone Tomei - Gli Amici della Musica
09 July 2017
Gilda has been masterfully interpreted by Australian soprano, but by now adopted by Italy, Jessica Pratt; an approach to the character done as the great professional she is, has given her the opportunity to show off her wonderful fresh vitality and an interpretative taste out of the ordinary; excellent accents, polished "fraseggio" and precise "messe di voce" always for the right motivation and aimed to the goal of of bringing to light the characteristics of a role not at all easy: the voice is stable, impeccable the tuning as the interaction with the other characters, always with great understanding and vocal blending.

Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi

KO - Anaclase

Hailed last autumn in Bergamo, Jessica Pratt raised the role of Gilda to heaven! We are blinded by the purity and easiness of the singing line, always based on a solid technique and the great scenic presence of the Australian diva.

Rumors claim she's the natural successor of Joan Sutherland. In fact, the Australian soprano is considered one of the best international performers of her repertoire. She now arrives in Spain, at the Palau les Arts Reian SofĂ­a in Valencia, where she debuts as Amenaide from Rossini's Tancredi. A great opportunity to witness the incredible skills of this great performer.
