'The Schubert was utterly magical. Privett’s beautifully focused tone turned the shepherd-lad’s expression of loneliness into a real tear-jerker, while the return of spring brought back joy and caprice, shared equally between the trio. Here is a soprano whose poise and musicality suggest another Felicity Lott in the making.' (Shepherd on the Rock, Ryedale Festival, York press, July 25 2017)
'led by British soprano Alice Privett, ardent and powerful in the title role'

'Alice Privett as Romilda was an operatic heroine in the grand style, with a voice of velvet and steel'- Birmingham Post 2015, '
'Alice Privett’s Romilda– Xerxes’s amorous target – is tall, willowy, with sparkling coloratura and vivid colours in the voice' - Arts Desk 2015, Xerxes Longborough Festival Opera
"She was the most accomplished in the Baroque style and she sang with elegance and honesty." - Backtrack 2015, London Handel Competition Final
"The most “finished” voice of the day belonged to British soprano Alice Privett. Privett’s.. command of its colours and movement is striking, and she’s a natural performer." Arts desk 2015, London Handel Competition Final
"In Messiaen’s ‘L’amour de piroutcha’ from the song cycle Harawi, they found their niche and showed great composure, Privett’s silky phrasing supported by Vindin’s subtly understated accompaniment, conveying the song’s strange mystical quality. Handel’s ‘Let the bright seraphim’ had a brassy brightness and allowed Privett to show off her breath control and neat trills."
- Claire Seymour, Opera Today, Kathleen Ferrier Competition final 2015
"Privett was exquisitely tender in her phrasing of Oriane’s distress" - The Arts Desk, 2015
"Alice Privett portrayed the Cock, in a delightfully well-observed performance, as a strutting, pompous, moustachioed wide-boy with an enormous codpiece. The moment when the Vixen ripped off his huge loin-bulge with her bare teeth was simultaneously hilarious, shocking and even Oedipally satisfying" - Opera Magazine, 2014
