What the press say...

For Madam Butterfly
‘In the name part, Julia Melinek acted superbly, portraying the character’s youth and vulnerability by means of subtle facial expression and deft movement. And when you add a cleanly focused and limpid soprano voice, complete with good line, ample reserves of breath and all the necessary heft for the big climaxes, you have the perfect Puccini heroine’
  Irish Times


Slight and fragile in appearance, Melinek was a convincing adolescent bride, and her performance was both vocally and facially expressive. Her voice is clear and vibrant and soared beautifully to the heights of the love duet. She was particularly moving in conveying the stiffening of the deluded heroine’s sinews in Act 2….She sang ‘One fine day’ with heart rending faith.’

For Suor Angelica
A  passionate performance, exquisitely realised, by Julia Melinek as Angelica, I found myself moved as I haven't been before by this fascinating score.
Michael Tanner for the Spectator


Julia Melinek was a strikingly effective Suor Angelica, heart breaking in her scene with Zia Principessa….  I was surprised to find myself misty eyed at the end and not ashamed to be
