" Beth Moxon was a dissatisfied, emotionally frustrated Ella, living largely in her imagination." - Opera Today (2018)

"...the cast of four produced dramatically focused and confidently sung performances... Beth Moxon delivered Ella’s short, declamatory lines with conviction and fluency, while managing to make Ella appear convincingly troubled and ‘lost’." - Opera Today (2018)

"Beth Moxon convincingly charts Ella’s quiet disintegration" - ★★★★ Classical Source (2018)

"The music requires large forces and much subtlety of tone. The combined choirs were equal to the task, as was the striking mezzo, Leeds-born Beth Moxon, whose strong voice and clear diction enabled her to rise above the tremendous wave of sound from choir and orchestra at her back." - Bill Blackburn (2018)

"Beth Moxon convincingly captured the conflicted Rosimonda’s inner battle with desire and duty. The only thing she seemed certain about, as she strutted and fretted back and forth, compulsively chain-smoking, was her disdain for Gernando. Rosimonda’s vengeance aria bristled, but her final aria charmed and calmed." Opera Today (2017)

"Beth Moxon is the glamorous, self-assured Rosimonda" - ​★★★★ The Guardian (2017)

"Beth Moxon’s mobster princess Rosimonda has a rich and wide-ranging coloratura." - ★★★★ The Express (2017)

"Beth Moxon’s suave Rosimonda is the torch singer...Moxon puts her arias over with the panache of a cabaret star." - ★★★★ The Stage (2017)

"There was more Handel (Verdi Prati from Alcina) from mezzo Beth Moxon: sad, wistful and lovely. My highlight of the evening was Monteverdi's Pur ti miro (L'incoronazione di Poppea). A stunning duet from Beth and Sofia, they beamed with serene enjoyment as they recreated the magic of music first performed in 1643" David Winskill (2016)

Vaughan William's Riders to the Sea at British Youth Opera 2015 "Strikingly mature, both vocally and dramatically, Beth Moxon’s Maurya is the centre to this maelstrom of musical grief. There’s a stillness to her performance that chafes effectively against the energy of Rebecca Silverman’s Cathleen." The Spectator (2015)

"Also startlingly good were John Stainsby (Sid), a voice of raw power combined with finesse and the golden-toned, golden-headed Beth Moxon (Nancy), who grew with her role almost as much as Davies (Albert Herring) did in his." Alice McVeigh - A Very Joyful Production - Benjamin Britten's 'Albert Herring' at Hampstead Garden Opera. (2014)
