Anna Harvey

Mezzo-soprano

"Anna Harvey's performance here is remarkable: not just delivering great arias such as and with clarity, energy and feeling, but also catching the macho swagger..."

Richard Morrison, Times

"Harvey was simply wonderful, and her aria in Cantata No. 11, was the evening\u2019s high point."

New York Times

"Anna Harvey, both uptight and sexy as Popova, sounded impressively ample and seamless."

Opera

"The singing was uniformly excellent, with the vocal highlights coming from … most particularly, Anna Harvey’s excellent Cherubino."

Independent

"Anna Harvey's gleefully priapic Lapák shone... she revealed a big, bright, characterful mezzo that's surely destined for exciting things."

What’s on Stage

"Anna Harvey stood out among the quartet of soloists with her rich tone and sensitive phrasing."

Tim Ashley, Guardian

"Harvey has a naturally youthful mezzo, and the higher register is in perfect condition, gleaming at the very top. Everything she sang was packed with flavour"

Rinaldo (Goffredo)

Theater Chemnitz (March 2017)

Baritone Andreas Beinhauer ... combines cultivated singing with a dramatic approach; the same can be said about mezzo-soprano Anna Harvey as Goffredo, the leader of the crusaders. 

Boris Gruhl, Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten

Their leader is Goffredo, who is sung impressively and played with parodic irony by Anna Harvey.

Jens Daniel Schubert, Sächsische Zeitung

Anna Harvey (Goffredo) and Jud Perry (Eustazio) complete the ensemble on a classy level.
