Reviews

“Michèle Losier (Phoebe) has an impeccable technique, which ensures a remarkable fluidity; the game scene [in Castor et Pollux] was quite expressive (especially in the third act, when she excited our spirits).”

“In the travesty role of Prince Charming, Michèle Losier’s full-blooded, confident mezzo is so good you wonder how theatres can ever justify substituting a tenor.”
