"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."

"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)
