"...It is my belief that she will make a significant career for herself on the operatic stage..."
“…Isolde Roxby brings glowing substance to Princess Aurora’s sweeping lines…”
Yehuda Shapiro, The Stage’ 
“…Isolde Roxby’s outstanding Aurora. Pleasantly rounded both vocally and in her characterisation..." Mark Valencia, Bachtrack 
“…The Aurora of Isolde Roxby, by far the biggest role in the opera ... rewarded the confidence placed in her with an account of the role which was generous in its lyricism, poignant in the pain of its self-discovery and completely mesmerising … compelling performance…”
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill 
“…Isolde Roxby proving exceptional as the Princess as her lyrical yet sensitive soprano is put to excellent use in conveying the various stages that the character goes through across the drama…”
Sam Smith, Music OMH 
“...Isolde Roxby as Princess Aurora sings, and acts, the role with total commitment and a bright soprano voice that would be ideal in Mozart operas…”
Plays to See 
“…As Tatiana Isolde Roxby makes the right journey from passionate naivete to poised, careful experience. Her ‘letter’ scene was the highpoint it should be, both musically and dramatically…”
Live Theatre UK 
“…admirable performance… Roxby manages the demands of the famous letter scene with warm tones and a real understanding of the emotional torment that leads Tatiana to take such an unconventional step…”
Plays to see
“"…Isolde Roxby has an absolutely stunning voice and gives a wonderful performance encapsulating every part of Tatiana’s innocence and delicate suffering. In the Letter Scene, her performance is filled with sorrow and fragility. This contrasts with the final scenes...Her voice soars as she tells Onegin to leave her alone…”.
“…fine dramatic singing here from Isolde Roxby… expertly navigate a mixture of languages and composers to create consistent characterisation”
The Gizzle Review 
"...Isolde Roxby was a wonderfully ‘genuine’ Cendrillon, delivering the sung and spoken text assuredly, with thoughtful interpretative gestures and a beguiling sweetness of character and tone..."

Autumn 2015 Helios
July 30, 2016
Last autumn's 'Toi Toi' Opera Club night was a success. I was performing in two new scenes written by up and coming composers. The first scene deals with a true life assassination attempt on Hitler and on the terrible aftermath. The second scene evokes the horrors of Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' with lyrics drawn from the classic novel.
After this, I had only a few days to learn the music for the 'Helios Collective' Formation's Masterclasses with Kaspar Holten, David Parry, Stephen Barlow, Stephen Unwin and Robert Saxton. Once we had blocked our scenes we performed for an audience with full costume and props and received help and criticism from these different experts on different days. It was a fascinating process as we got to understand a lot more about all of the seperate aspects which go into creating opera and how each part effects the other.
