...while Rosalind Plowright proves unexpected but inspired casting as the most glamorous Mrs Sedley I've ever encountered. Even a dowdy grey wig can't conceal her statuesque beauty, and her low notes make me wonder if she wasn't always a dark-toned mezzo-soprano.
Sunday Times - Hugh Canning - April 2014

Rosalind Plowright est une irrésistible Mrs Sedley, très arsenic et vieilles dentelles, donnant une touche d’humour fugace à cette histoire tragique.

Rosalind Plowright is an irresistible Mrs Sedley, very Arsenic and Old Lace, giving a fleeting touch of humour to this tragic story.

Egalement remarquables, les seconds rôles :....la Mrs Sedley de Rosalind Plowright en bigote passionnée de criminologie..



Equally remarkable are the supporting roles ... the Mrs Sedley of Rosalind Plowright, as a sanctimonious old biddy with a criminological bent.
Marie-Aude Roux - Le Monde - April 2014

Tous les seconds plans sont bien tenus. […] Toutefois, tous marquent le pas face à l'aura de Rosalind Plowright. Absente de Lyon depuis sa Norma de 1987, véritable "bête de scène", l'immense cantatrice dispose du chic des artistes d'exception et une présence hallucinante. Devenue mezzo-soprano, son registre grave s'est étoffé. Le timbre est toujours aussi ensorcelant, unique, immédiatement identifiable. L'impact et la vaillance sont toujours là et l'on rêve de l'entendre en Comtesse de "La Dame de Pique" tant elle parvient à transformer instantanément le rôle secondaire de Mrs Sedley en premier plan !

All second parts are well performed. […]However, Rosalind Plowright is a cut above the rest . Absent from the Lyon stage since her Norma in 1987 , real " stage animal " , the singer has the elegance of exceptional artists and an incredible presence . Now a mezzo -soprano , her low register has developped. The timbre is still enchanting , unique, immediately recognizable . The impact and the stamina are still there and one dreams of hearing her as Countess in " The Queen of Spades " as she manages to instantly transform the secondary part of Mrs. Sedley into a main role !

Rosalind Plowright’s Mrs Sedley alone stood out, an amalgam of matriarchal Lady Billows (Herring) and post-menopausal Governess (Screw).
Andrew Clark - Financial Times - April 2014

Notevole la Mrs Sedley di Rosalind Ploweight per incisività vocale , varietà d’accento e autorevole presenza scenica.

Rosalind Plowright, as Mrs Sedley, was remarkable with an impressive voice, a great dynamic range and an authoritative stage presence.

Tous les rôles des villageois sont parfaitement campés, autant Kathleen Wilkinson et Rosalind Plowright toutes deux parfaites sans friser la caricature dans les rôles extrêmes de Tantine et Mrs. Sedley ...

All the roles of the villagers are portrayed perfectly, with a special mention for Kathleen Wilkinson and Rosalind Plowright, who are perfect without going into any kind of caricature in the two opposite roles of Auntie and Mrs Sedley...
