"Making her Vienna debut in the role of Herodias, English mezzo soprano Carole Wilson scored a singular triumph. Here was a singer / actress or Regina Resnick character who was as fascinating to watch as she was to hear.

Her exasperated fortissimo top A natural on "There sol schweigen was" Nilsson-esque." - Jonathan Sutherland - Bachtrack

 

"The sympathy (for Herod) came as no surprise with Carole Wilson to contend with as a spouse. Currently a State Opera ensemble member, this was Miss Wilson's first Herodias here - and an occasion to be remembered. Her first utterance (goblet in hand) after tentatively descending the stairwell, was a self-effacing belch establishement to the character. Throughout, this characterization was filled with a strange detail, intensity and focus - riding on a bright and searing mezzo ideal for the task to hand." - Moore Parker - The Opera Critic
