Stephen Walker, Fringe Guru (read the full review here)
“The performers were four outrageously talented individuals….this was a truly flawless production.”
Rufus McAllister, Buxton Fringe (read the full review here)
“The acoustics of the room cradle the sounds of harp (played by Eloise Irving), horn (Oskar McCarthy and Rebecca Lea), piano (Jonathan Ainscough and Rebecca Lea) and most impressively, voice (each member of the cast delivers a fine vocal performance).”
Martin Thomasson, British Theatre Guide
**** “Re:Sound manage to bring the ghosts of Viennese past alive and before our very eyes in style, all amongst the hustle and bustle of a modern English pub.”
Laura Cress, Broadway Baby (read the full review here)

I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t know Poulenc’s La voix humaine before this evening, but Rebecca Lea’s quite stunning performance has made me desperate to see it again as soon as possible.
The brilliant dramatic hook is that the conversation is conducted by phone: we only see and hear the woman’s side of things. She, by turns, is simpering, kittenish, enraged, desperate and pleading. It’s an exhaustingly rich role, portrayed by Lea brilliantly and without let-up.

The success or failure of La Voix Humaine rests almost entirely on the shoulders of the solo soprano, & Rebecca Lea (who also directed both operas) gave what i can only describe as one of the finest performances i’ve ever witnessed on stage • Hers was no mere act; she had fully become the character of Elle, & i found myself completely drawn into her claustrophobic world.
At the work’s culmination, the conversation—& with it, everything else—brought to an end, i couldn’t help but share Lea’s devastation & tears; it was a simply astounding performance.
