“Bronwyn Douglass is magnificent as the noblewoman Donna Elvira”

Irina Dunn – City Hub

“Bronwyn Douglass’s focussed and fiery Donna Elvira is a force to be reckoned with… she commands the stage space in any scene with a pointed purpose. Her precise,  fluid tone matches her character’s gutsy but ill-fated plight.

Douglass is a fine anchor with regards to vocal blend in ensemble moments. In the trio singing when  hunting the libertine Don Juan,  she creates shimmering soundscapes… Her window scene and trio  (‘Ah taci ingiusto core’) with the soon to be switched Leporello and Don Giovanni is beautifully shaped. The trajectory of her comic-tragic character are always delivered with verve and perfect dramatic timing.”

Paul Nolan – Sydney Arts Guide 

“Australian artists shone as the female principals – Sophie Salvesani  as Donna Anna, and  Bronwyn Douglass as Donna Elvira.”

David Spicer – Stage Whispers

“This is a Don Giovanni without gimmicks… Instead it relies on a top-notch cast… The singing team is excellent, with no weak spots… Sophie Salvasani’s sweet, athletic soprano proving an effective contrast to the dramatic timbre of Bronwyn Douglass (Donna Elvira), who so impressed in last year’s concert performance of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda.”

Steve Moffatt – The Daily Telegraph

“Douglass’ Elvira was [a] … brisk and business-like Elvira, with, perhaps an underlying sturdiness that made believable her ultimate acceptance of the situation. “

Gordon Williams – Operawire

“Douglass offers up a rich portrayal of a woman torn between love for Don Giovanni, hatred at his deceptions and grief over his impending death.”

Rachel Fieldhouse – Over 60

“Bronwyn Douglass gave her all to the role of Donna Elvira, throwing herself into the character’s emotional roller coaster.”

Chantal Nguyen – Bachtrack

“Young Australian soprano Bronwyn Douglass shows more evidence of her great future.”

Victor Grynberg – J-wire
