"The Leonora of Lynsey Docherty was well sung, beautiful and exciting" - Opera Magazine
"Lynsey Docherty is winsome as Rattlebone’s daughter Peasblossom and hyper-sophisticated as Rhomboid’s guilty wife, Theodore."

"His casting is canny, too: a crack team of five – Paul Featherstone, Carl Sanderson, Anthony Flaum, Lynsey Docherty and Caroline Kennedy – all sing with shining ease and vividly animate the cartoon characters."

Lynsey Docherty sang with emotion and intellect"
- Opera Now
"The cast struck me as precisely the sort of versatile repertory team Offenbach must have had in mind — five singers with light, attractive voices that can deliver full-scale operatic power when required. Crucially, they’re also terrific in the spoken dialogue... They act like a real ensemble, too, and one of the joys of the evening was seeing them switch characters between the two shows. Lynsey Docherty, a feisty Princess Peasblossom in Croquefer, was an airheaded Ab-Fab lush after the interval"
