"Maire Therese Carmack’s voice,
A STAND-UP-AND-TAKE-NOTICE, DARK, COMMANDING MEZZO-SOPRANO,
made you do just that."

"As Dorabella, Carmack was all
peaches and cream,
both vocally and dramatically."

"Handel’s music gives Maire Therese Carmack

excellent opportunities to display her

BEAUTIFUL MEZZO-SOPRANO VOICE.

She made the most of them all, and cut a dazzlingly grand operatic

picture in her brilliant costume. She acted the part of Juno with a

PERFECT BALANCE OF COMEDY AND THE HIGH DUDGEON

befitting a goddess scorned."
