Anne Marie Gibbons

Mezzo-soprano

"Anne Marie Gibbons displayed some dazzling coloratura and a very impressive technique throughout."

Faye Courtney Opera Britannia

"Anne Marie Gibbons was an outstanding Ariodante, whether fiery in coloratura, sharing in a ravishing love-duet with Rachel Nicholls… or lamenting in a memorably beautiful Love undying"

Christopher Morely Birmingham Post

"I like the Ariodante of Anne Marie Gibbons a lot. She looks like an Octavian in the making"

Mike Reynolds Musicalcriticism.com

"Her light, bright and pure-sounding timbre is perfectly suited to Handel and she is a wonderfully expressive artist"

Faye Courtney Opera Britannia

"Among the principals [Anne Marie Gibbons] stood out ... as a powerful Widow Begbick."

Ian Fox Opera
