”Sigríđur Ósk Kristjánsdóttir proved a worthy temptress as Mother Goose, clearly first amongst equals in her brothel.” (Mother Goose in Stravinsky’s The Rake´s Progress)

“The Royal College of Music’s new staging of The Rake’s Progress features alternating casts; last night’s performers included a Pole and an Icelander, both singing as clearly as full-time professionals.” (Mother Goose in Stravinsky’s The Rake´s Progress)

“Praise could be lavished on each singer in some respect for the characterisation that was achieved, but a few stand out … Simon Lobelson and Sigríđur Ósk Kristjánsdóttir, as the black and white cats respectively, brought out the playfulness and athleticism within their roles, with some wonderful feline vocalisations thrown into the musical lines.” (The Cat and the Squirrel in Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges)

The Spectator

“The central creation of sensual warmth and bliss, the female Cat and squirrel were taken by Sigridur Osk Kristjansdottir. (Remember that name, too) who sports as fine a pair of legs as you’ll see on operatic stage, knows how to wear elaborate costumes as though they are part of her, and altogether has a line in voluptuousness which shows that the child has precocious nightmares.“ (The Cat and the Squirrel in Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges)
