REVIEWS

"There are numerous talented artists onstage. In particularly fine voice are Alexandra Lowe (Mrs Coyle), Katie Coventry (Kate), Harry Thatcher (Spencer Coyle) and John Findon (Sir Philip). Webster has effectively balanced the empathy shown by Mr and Mrs Coyle, despite their disquiet at Owen’s decision, with the unbending resolve of his family. Thatcher adds an undercurrent of warmth to his role, beautifully supported by his troubled wife (Lowe) sung with such honeyed tones."- Louise Lewis, The British Theatre Guide, on Alexandra’s performance of Mrs Coyle in Britten’s Owen Wingrave for British Youth Opera 2016

"Providing a vocal and emotional anchor for this coldest of works were Harry Thatcher’s Spencer Coyle and Alexandra Lowe’s Mrs Coyle, both demonstrating real vocal control and no little beauty without ever losing the clarity of diction essential in a production without surtitles."- Alexandra Coghlan, The Arts Desk, on Alexandra’s performance of Mrs Coyle in Britten’s Owen Wingrave for British Youth Opera 2016

"Among the women, Alexandra Lowe’s sympathetic Mrs Coyle and Katie Coventry’s Kate Julian stand out, the latter a virginal late-Victorian viper whose coquetry and marital ambitions become instruments of murder."- Anna Picard, The Times, on Alexandra’s performance of Mrs Coyle in Britten’s Owen Wingrave for British Youth Opera 2016

"...He was ably supported by Alexandra Lowe in the smaller but highly important role of Mrs Coyle, perhaps the only really sympathetic character in the opera. Lowe and Thatcher brought an understated naturalism to their relationship and Lowe gave a real glow to Mrs Coyle."- Robert Hugill, on Alexandra’s performance of Mrs Coyle in Britten’s Owen Wingrave for British Youth Opera 2016

"...Lysander (Adam Temple-Smith) and Hermia (Hollie-anne Bangham) were a powerful pairing – his tone has a nice edge to it now – and Aaron O’Hare’s warmly finished baritone gave distinction to Demetrius, complementing Alexandra Lowe’s bright, clear soprano."- Robert Beale, Manchester Evening News, on Alexandra’s performance of Helena in the RNCM’s 2015 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Britten.

"Alexandra Lowe (a star of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and last year) and Isabelle Peters (the amazing Rapunzel in the Royal Exchange’s recent Into The Woods) were perfectly matched as Fiordiligi and Dorabella. The former sustained her tone quality and power throughout the piece, with a show-stopping Per pieta in the second act, and the latter sang with immense distinction and used her acting ability so well you could never ignore her, even when someone else was singing.” - Robert Beale, Manchester Theatre Awards, on Alexandra’s performance as Fiordiligi in the RNCM’s Spring production 2016 of in Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte

“Stealing the show was Alexandra Lowe excelling as ambitious office worker Rose Maurrant. Looking ice cool, in her light blue summer dress with cinched-in waist and black accessories, Rose was torn between the steady-Eddie Sam versus the rather disreputable character of the married Harry Easter. Captivating was Lowe’s performance of What Good Would the Moon Be when Rose refuses Easter’s promises and the heart-wrenching emotion of Don’t Forget The Lilac Bush when she says goodbye to Sam. With an unforced voice just made for musicals Lowe revealed a generously attractive and radiantly warm soprano that filled the theatre together with the advantage of an innate stage presence and sure-fire acting prowess. Bewitching were Rose’s duets with Sam Remember That I Care concerning a poem they shared and We’ll Go Away Together as she considers Sam’s plan to elope.” - Michael Cookson, Seen and Heard International, on Alexandra’s performance as Rose Maurrant in the RNCM’s 2015 production of Street Scene by Kurt Weill

“Alexandra Lowe stood out in the title role (not her first great performance for RNCM opera – she was Helena in the Manchester Theatre Award-winning A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Métella in the recent La Vie Parisienne): her diction is above reproach, a quality which was not consistently present with some others. This is the work from which ‘Angels, Ever Bright And Fair’ comes, and she made it the show-stopper it was meant to be.” - Robert Beale, Manchester Theatre Awards

“As the eponymous Theodora, Alexandra Lowe, who I admired in the recent Elizabeth Harwood Award Competition, was outstanding. Blessed with height and presence, she characterized the role in her acting and quality of vocal expression in a well thought out manner. I shall watch out for what I expect to be a promising career with interest.” - Robert J Farr, Seen and Heard International
