The Carmelites // Welsh National Opera

"Nuns do tend to all look the same, and the great strength of Phyllida Lloyd's direction is that not one is like any other, from Elizabeth Vaughan's aristocratic First Prioress - the only holdover from the Coliseum cast, her death scene as harrowing as before - down to Natalie Christie's cheerful peasant Sister Constance, an especially touching, crisply enunciated impersonation. A profoundly stirring evening."
