"A couple of voices stand out, especially the soprano Iúnó Connolly as Princess Caraboo and Sarah Whitehead, the woman ruined by her brother..." The Guardian, Andrew Clements (Full review: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/sep/08/english-eccentrics-review-malcolm-williamson-british-youth-opera-peacock-theatre ) (2016)

"Given the genuinely ensemble nature of British Youth Opera’s cast, it seems unfair to pick out individual singers, but special mention should be made of Iúnó Connolly’s heartfelt Sarah Whitehead..." Bach Track, Matthew Rye (Full review: https://bachtrack.com/review-english-eccentrics-williamson-british-youth-opera-september-2016) (2016)

"Iúnó Connolly, blessed with a powerful, pliant soprano, excelled as the pathetic spendthrift Sarah Whitehead and the bizarre Princess Caraboo and clearly enjoyed Williamson’s well-crafted vocal writing." Classical Source, Peter Reed (Full review: http://www.classicalsource.com/db_control/db_concert_review.php?id=13933) (2016)

"Soprano Iúnó Connolly delivered strongly characterised and technically assured performances as Sarah Whitehead, the woman whose brother was hanged for forgery leaving her in penury, and Princess Caraboo, a West-Country maid who has delusions of grandeur." Opera Today, Claire Seymour (Full review: http://www.operatoday.com/content/2016/09/british_youth_o.php?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter) (2016)
