“The cast sang excellently, Fleur Bray (Frasquita) and Olivia Barry (Mercedes) especially providing comedy to counteract the high drama.” Ed Gizzle, 22nd April 2012

“Fleur de Bray’s Frasquita and Olivia Barry’s Mercedes make a great double act as they exchange musical repartees in a bawdy, comical style, with both their voices complementing one another well.” James Buxton, UK Theatre Network, 11th April 2012

“The guest appearance of Olivia Barry (Mezzo Soprano) was a particular highlight of the evening most notable for a dramatic and moving rendition of Sondheim’s ‘Send in the Clowns’.” George Tosh, Online magazine for Uttlesford 2012

“Olivia Barry was a musical and sensitive soloist in the 2009 Thaxted Festival Performance of Mozart’s Requiem. The Velvet Quality of her fine voice, and her communication skills bode well for a distinguished career.” Michael Kibblewhite, Conductor 2009

“Of the four solos in the work, the one that was executed with the most technical ability was the alto solo sung by Olivia Barry. This young alto managed the very low tessitura of this piece with great ease” David Mills 2009

“She sang with a graceful ease and her performances of ‘Woe unto them who forsake him’ and ‘O Rest in the lord’ were delightful, and without doubt, the solo highlights of the evening.” The Ross Gazette 2009.
