'Our two leading sopranos each feel superbly suited to this score, and to the space...Luci Briginshaw's natural, appealing Adele regularly brings energy and joy to the stage, sung with thrilling fullness (and delightful petulance where appropriate).'

"Luci Briginshaw....revolutionised Gilda from "Gualtier Maldè! …Caro nome" onwards, giving a performance of heartbreaking softness, innocence and sincerity fuelled by singing which grew ever more fabulous as the night drew on." Review of Opera Loki's Rigoletto, Wimbledon Studios, August 2014. http://bachtrack.com/review-rigoletto-opera-loki-september-2014 (2014)
"As for the wonderful singing of the Queen of the Night! Her arias are the reason many love this opera, and Luci Briginshaw did not disappoint."

"The show's shining light was the gorgeous Luci Briginshaw. She glowed with talent throughout, and it was quite possibly her imaginative, daring, earthly performance that drew expression from her co-workers. She owned the stage, her aching love for Alfredo penetrating the audience, and expressing herself with such beauty that she provoked several murmured 'wow's from the front row." Review of Opera Loki's La Traviata, Upstairs at the Gatehouse, September 2013. http://www.fringeopera.com/2013/09/14/review-opera-lokis-la-traviata-upstairs-at-the-gatehouse/ (2013)

In 2014, Luci toured as Gilda in Opera Loki's Rigoletto and also joined the chorus of Garsington Opera for their production of Offenbach's Vert Vert. In 2013, she played Leila in Opera South East's production of The Pearl Fishers, Violetta for Opera Loki's La Traviata and The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute for Opera Minima.
Luci has a keen interest in contemporary children's opera: in 2012 she toured nationally with an original production of Martyn Harry's My Mother Told Me Not To Stare, for which she was principal pianist as well as playing two singing roles. In 2013 she gave three performances as The Grandma in the world premiere of Mario Ferraro's children's opera, Ahayiuta and the Cloud Eater, and in 2016 she toured as Yelena/Sofiya/Anya for ETO Education's production of Laika the Spacedog in more than twenty schools, community centres and theatre spaces throughout the UK. In 2018 she will again be using her piano skills, alongside singing, in Martyn Harry's Vehicles.
Luci has worked regularly with The Medici Singers/Brandenburg Sinfonia and has recently appeared as their soprano soloist for Mozart C Minor Mass, Bach B Minor Mass and Brahms Requiem, as well as Beethoven's Mass in C with the Orchestra of St Johns at Dorchester Abbey, Carl Rütti's Requiem with the Bournemouth Sinfonia at Wimborne Abbey, and the Requiems of Verdi and Brahms at Reading Minster.
