Camila Provenzale (Titinger) as Micaela
Leeds Grand Theatre
Opera North, october 2021
"There are also striking turns from Camila Titinger, who brings real pathos to the part of Micaela—the woman abandoned by José in favour of Carmen."
James Ballands, British Theatre Guide
"…. Micaela - a performance of infinite colour from soprano Camilla Titinger."
Geoffrey Mogridge, Ilkey Gazette
"Her more conventional rival, Micaela – here pregnant with Don José’s child, though his interest in her is minimal – receives an impressively lyrical interpretation from Camila Titinger.
George Hall, The Stage
"Throughout, he sets her upon an earnest mission to deliver sorrowful messages to Don José from his dying mother. She sings her arias most beautifully, with an almost Puccinian rapture, the stamp of unconfined lyricism marking her entire performance."
Tom Tollet, Leeds Living
"...and Camila Titinger’s soft-toned Micaëla has power where it counts."
Erica Leal, The Guardian
"Soprano Camila Titinger played Micaela with considerable force and subtlety, the pathos very apparent whenever she appeared."
Richard Wildocks, Bach Track
"Camila Titinger, the Italian-Brazilian soprano, has a lovely voice and succeeded well in being the spurned and heavily pregnant Micaela."
Richard Trinder, Yorkshire Times
"...Camila Titinger caresses her bump for extra pathos as she sings her main aria so beautifully!"
Eileen Caiger Gray, Mature Times – The voice or our generation
