'Romilda (Sophie Levi) and her minxish sister Adelanta (Alexandra Fleischmann) were dressed identically.... Both had beautiful voices, which swelled in that intimate space, and gave nuanced dramatic performances.' - The Idle Woman - https://theidlewoman.net/2018/09/02/xerse-francesco-cavalli-1654-2/ (2018)
Sophie Levi as Romilda sings with an assured baroque gloss and portrays her conflicting emotions with real depth. - Owen Davies - 'Plays to see' - https://playstosee.com/xerse/ (2018)
