Opera

Rusalka

Jezibaba in Rusalka for Scottish Opera
Opera Now
As Jezibaba, Leah-Marian Jones evokes a pungent worldly wisdom that is both pragmatic and hideous.

Guillaume Tell

Hedwige in Guillaume Tell by Welsh National Opera, November 2014
Planet Hugill
Leah-Marian Jones made warmly supportive Hedwige, and her account of Hedwige's impassioned outburst in act four, when Tell is in prison, made you wish Rossini had given more to the role.

Roberto Devereux

Sara, Duchess di Nottingham in Vagaries Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux for Welsh National Opera, October 2013
Seen and Heard International
Leah-Marian Jones’ portrayal of that role by was outstanding in both singing and acting.
Sara, Duchess di Nottingham in Vagaries Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux for Welsh National Opera, October 2013
Morning Star
Leah-Marian Jones is utterly convincing as the unhappily married Duchess of Nottingham who pines for her lost love, the Earl of Essex. Her scenes with both Elisabetta and Leonardo Capalbo's Roberto are pure joy as she moves from anguish to tender love.
Sara, Duchess di Nottingham in Vagaries Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux for Welsh National Opera, October 2013
Wales Online
Leah-Marian Jones sang a fragile, vulnerable Sara, the queen’s love rival for Roberto in this loose retelling of history. Sara’s scenes with her husband, the powerfully sung Nottingham from David Kempster, were gripping and disturbing.

The Rake's Progress

Baba the Turk in The Rake's Progress for Scottish Opera, March 2012
Culture Magazine Sunday Times
Leah-Marian Jones is an alluring and sympathetically sung Bearded Lady.

Hansel and Gretel

Witch in Hansel and Gretel for Scottish Opera, February 2012
The Daily Telegraph
The show was stolen by Leah-Marian Jones’s comic turn as the Witch – wittily presented as a simpering rococo dairymaid, rather than a toothless hag.
Witch in Hansel and Gretel for Scottish Opera, February 2012
The Guardian
Leah-Marian Jones played the flirtatious witch with vocal might and flair.
Witch in Hansel and Gretel for Scottish Opera, February 2012
The Financial Times
Leah-Marian Jones, who sang Hansel in a previous Scottish Opera production, is reincarnated as the Witch – glamorous and candy-like, with a vivid cackle. She sets the seal on a memorable night.
Witch in Hansel and Gretel for Scottish Opera, February 2012
Culture Magazine Sunday Times
Leah-Marian Jones plays and sings and eye - and ear - catching Witch.

Katya Kabanova

Kabanicha in Katya Kabanova for Welsh National Opera, October 2011
The Guardian
Leah-Marian Jones's Kabanicha is chilling.

La Cenerentola

Tisbe in La Cenerentola for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, December 2007
The Sunday Times
Leah-Marian Jones’s venomous Tisbe almost steals the show.

Cosi fan tutte

Dorabella in Cosi fan tutte for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden
The Times
Leah Marian Jones was the best of the women as Dorabella who for once is blonde and fluffy as well as flirtatious. The Heart Duet with Guglielmo showed the advantage of having fresh young voices toying with one another.

Carmen

Mercedes in Carmen for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden
The Sunday Times
Leah Marian Jones’ Mercedes stood out, the only singer on stage to sing and speak meaningful idiomatic French.

Otello

Emilia in Otello for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden
Opera
Leah-Marian Jones convinced us that Emilia is a formidable character.

Der Rosenkavalier

Annina in Der Rosenkavalier for Scottish Opera
Opera
The many smaller roles were most expertly filled, with Leah-Marian Jones a particularly alluring Annina.

Concerts / Recitals

Soloist in Verdi Requiem with Brighton & Hove Philharmonic Society
Evening Argus
Leah Marian Jones’s voice is wonderfully brass edged but she can also let it soar bravely high. What is more, she acts each phrase as well as she sings it. Her Carmen for English National Opera must have been ravishing.
