Reviews

“Anna Grevelius’s Siébel the most attractive and sympathetic of a fine cast (English National Opera, Faust)”

The Independent

“The Swedish mezzo gave an impressive interpretation of Elvira’s complex character, as a goody two shoes whose poised retenue hides inner hysteria. Her refined singing, both in her entrance aria and the ensembles, made one regret she does not get to sing Elvira’s second act aria “Mi tradì quell’alma ingrata “
