Dorset Opera: La bohème 2018
Bachtrack (Dominic Lowe) Shelley Jackson was a captivating Mimì, a delicate and charming presence which became deeply moving in the third act. Vocally, she showed well-integrated registers with a beguilingly full lower voice and secure top notes. It’s a nicely sized voice, but there’s a flair for nimble pianissimo which was sensibly deployed.
The Stage (George Hall) Leading the cast is Shelley Jackson, whose refulgent soprano imprints Mimi on the audience’s collective memory.
