"Rachael Cox is a tour de force as Dido. Possessed of imposing voice, she delivers each aria with a degree of precision that has the audience hanging on her every note. Dido and Aeneas presents a particular challenge to singers in the range of emotions they are required to convey in a such a short space of time, particularly so in the case of Dido. Ms Cox’s faultless performance demonstrated her complete understanding and command of the role. Put simply, she nailed it." Fringe Review (2014)
