Anne Marie Gibbons

Mezzo-soprano

  • 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
  • Among the principals [Anne Marie Gibbons] stood out ... as a powerful Widow Begbick.
    Ian Fox, Opera
  • Her light, bright and pure-sounding timbre is perfectly suited to Handel and she is a wonderfully expressive artist
    Faye Courtney, Opera Britannia
  • I like the Ariodante of Anne Marie Gibbons a lot. She looks like an Octavian in the making
    Mike Reynolds, Musicalcriticism.com
  • Anne Marie Gibbons displayed some dazzling coloratura and a very impressive technique throughout.
    Faye Courtney, Opera Britannia

      Anne Marie Gibbons is also totally sure as the manipulative Begbick.
      Michael Dervan, The Irish Times
      Among the principals, Claudia Boyle stood out as a sensuous Jenny, as did Anne Marie Gibbons as a powerful Widow Begbick.
      Ian Fox, Opera
      John Molloy and Anne Marie Gibbons are also particularly impressive as the founding criminals of the new city of depravity, Trinity Moses and Begbick.
      Emer O’Kelly, The Irish Independent
      The fruity mezzo of Anne Marie Gibbons makes such a punchy impact as the opportunistic Begbick that you regret the character progressively fading from the libretto as the plot develops.

    • David (Saul), Buxton Festival
      (July 2011)

      Most impressive of the cast was Anne Marie Gibbons, a stunning David, who used her burnished lower register to convey significant emotional depth as the young man experiences fresh hopes, passions and fears.
      Claire Seymour, Opera Today
      an accomplished line-up of solo singers, among whom Anne-Marie Gibbons (David) and Robert Murray (Jonathan) shone brightest.
      Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph
      [David is] an irresistibly androgynous hero in Anne Marie Gibbons’s mezzo, strong and sure of focus.
      Hilary Finch, The Times
      [it is] an impeccable cast, among whom Anne Marie Gibbons’s David is outstanding
      Christopher Gray, The Oxford Times
      Gibbons is good
      Tim Ashley, The Guardian
    • Messiah, Handel
      December 2010

      The occasion was especially memorable for the radiant singing of the mezzo-soprano Anne Marie Gibbons who, although heavily pregnant, was standing in at short notice for an indisposed German soloist.
      Liam McAuley, The Irish Times
    • Ariodante (Ariodante, Handel), English Touring Opera
      October 2009

      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 Morley, Birmingham Post
      I liked the Ariodante of Anne Marie Gibbons a lot. She looks like an Octavian in the making, sings with little vibrato, a pure register and an enviable technique in the coloratura passages that litter the role. Breath control was exemplary…Her sound was fresh and attractive and she did not put a foot wrong…

    • Milady (Fra Diavolo, Auber), Stanley Hall Opera
      June 2009

      Anne Marie Gibbons as Milady proved to be a good singing actress: her musical attack is neat and precise and far from the pantomime dame of the Munich production, she was elegant and spirited
      Mike Reynolds, musicalcriticism.com
    • Anna (Maria Stuarda, Donizetti), Chelsea Opera Group
      November 2007

      It was left up to Philippe Fourcade as Cecil and Anne Marie Gibbons, as Anna to sing with style and accuracy…
      Anna (Maria Stuarda, Donizetti), Chelsea Opera Group
    • Annio (La Clemenza di Tito, Mozart), English National Opera,
      June 2007

      Anne Marie Gibbons, as the gentle but brave young man Annio, gave a stylish and highly enjoyable performance.
