The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera 

October 2019 

"The vocal highlight came from Luci Briginshaw's Fennimore, who dispensed the show's hit tune 'The Assassination of Caesar' with juicy tone and plenty of swagger." 

Ditlev Rindom, Opera Magazine, October 2019

The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera - October 2019 

"Rising above all - quite literally at the close when she delivered her aria of reconciliation - was Luci Briginshaw's Fennimore, whose sweet, light soprano perfectly captured the dream of liberation."

Claire Seymour, Opera Today

The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera - October 2019 

"Luci Briginshaw as Fennimore was the closest that the work comes to a heroine. She gets two major solos and a duet with Severin. Briginshaw managed to pull off the trick of singing with great ingenue insouciance, yet giving the music a real edge."

Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill

"Luci Briginshaw sings the hit number 'Ich bin eine arme Verwandte' with steely charm"

"Luci Briginshaw...totally justifies bagging the evening's two best songs"

Die Fledermaus (Adele) Fulham Opera  

November 2016

"Our two leading sopranos each feel superbly suited to this score, and to the space...Luci Briginshaw's natural, appealing Adele regularly brings energy and joy to the stage, sung with thrilling fullness (and delightful petulance where appropriate)."

Charlotte Valori, Operissima

La Boheme (Mimi)

Opera Loki  

October 2015

"Luci Briginshaw is a radiant Mimi - a soft glow ever present in her eyes, despite her pallid complexion and increasingly sickly posture. She's a deeply likeable character: her earnest self-expression and dignity still standing in her final hours, and Luci Briginshaw's voice reflects this admirably."

Francesca Wickers, Fringe Opera

La Traviata (Violetta)

Opera Loki

September 2013 

"The show's shining light was the gorgeous Luci Briginshaw. She glowed with talent throughout, and it was quite possibly her imaginative, daring, earthly performance that drew expression from her co-workers. She owned the stage, her aching love for Alfredo penetrating the audience, and expressing herself with such beauty that she provoked several murmured 'wow's from the front row."

Francesca Wickers, Fringe Opera

The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera October 2019 

"Star of the evening is Luci Briginshaw, who as Fennimore, the housekeeper's poor relation, moves stealthily behind the scenes to bring about the necessary reconciliation between Olim and Severin. Her bright, vivacious soprano drew deserved praise from an enthusiastic audience."

Stephen Pritchard, Bachtrack

The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera - October 2019 

"Luci Briginshaw's Fennimore and James Kryshak's creepy Lottery Agent are equally outstanding."

Tim Ashley, The Guardian

The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera - October 2019 

"Arguably the most intriguing performance of all, however, comes from Luci Briginshaw as Fennimore whose soprano has a brilliant metallic quality."

Sam Smith, Music OMH

The Silver Lake (Fennimore) English Touring Opera - October 2019 

"Luci Briginshaw gave a charming and beautifully sung presentation...fully credible as Fennimore, who is the catalyst for the final reconciliation as well as for hope for a better future."

Agnes Kory, Seen and Heard International

By Voice Alone 

Competition Final  

May 2019

"Luci Briginshaw took both second prize and audience prize for ringing, secure and dramatically engaged renditions of Qui la voce from I puritani and the Queen of the Night's Der Holle Rache."

Neil Fisher, Opera Magazine, May 2019

Don Giovanni (Donna Anna) Hampstead Garden Opera  

November 2015

"Luci Briginshaw's superb Donna Anna is one of the evening's main highlights, thrillingly well sung and beautifully acted"

Charlotte Valori, Bachtrack

Rigoletto (Gilda)

Opera Loki

August 2014 

"Luci Briginshaw...revolutionised Gilda from "Caro nome" onwards, giving a performance of heartbreaking softness, innocence and sincerity fuelled by singing which grew ever more fabulous as the night drew on."

Charlotte Valori, Bachtrack
