A Midsummer Night's Dream, RCM 2018

"Hippolyta gets 43 bars of music in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, many of them confined to brief asides or else lost in ensembles, so the singer who plays her seldom rates a mention in reviews. Yet Ida Ränzlöv... sang a cameo where every note was flavoured, every word weighed for its subtext and every action measured. Hers was the performance that stayed with me as I left the Britten Theatre..." - Mark Valencia, Bachtrack

"Every time I hear Ida Ränzlöv sing, I want to hear more! She stole the show in the title role of Faramondo at last year’s London Handel Festival, was a lustrous-voiced, haughtily-mannered Fox in the RCM’s Cunning Little Vixen in November, and also greatly impressed as the Daughter in British Youth Opera’s production of Judith Weir’s The Vanishing Bridegroom’s last September. Here, even though in the fairly small role of Hippolyta Ränzlöv had less opportunity to shine, shine she certainly did..." - Claire Seymour, Opera Today
