Wotan - James Johnson

Der Ring des Nibelungen

Opera Australia 2016

"Liane Keegan makes a thrillingly sung Erda, her rich Alto riding Wagners orchestral textures."

Das Rheingold

Clive Paget ~ Limelight

"Liane Keegan makes an affecting impact as primeval earth goddess Erda, delivering rich expression in her voice as she convinces Wotan of the dangers of the Ring."

Das Rheingold

~ Simon Parris

Ërda returned confused from her wisdom rejuvenating slumber via Liane Keegan's colossally sensitive performance."

Siegfried

Paul Selar ~ Herald Sun

"Liane Keegan's blind Erda, continued her good work in Rheingold. It is a dark, luscious voice and steady as a rock across the whole range. "

Siegfried

Clive Paget ~ Limelight

"The quality of Keegan's voice is the sheer musicality of her voice which floats effortlessly over the orchestra. Keegan uses her finely honed vocal expression to create an entire performance with very little facial or physical movement."

Siegfried

~ Simon Parris

"Liane Keegan is magnificent in her single scene, mournfully ineffectual but unforgettable nonetheless."

Siegfried

~ Tim Byrne

 

"Liane Keegan's fiery and magnificently sung Azucena is a role she will be able to carry though a long, impressive career." 

Adelaide Times

Ewart Shaw

 

 

"Liane Keegan (contralto) had an enviably even quality throughout her range. She struck gold particularly with her entry into the House of Judgement."

Dream of Gerontius, Elgar

Howard Thomas

 

 

"Dramatic Contralto Liane Keegan's lush and glorious voice, longing for eternity in the ravishing fourth movement, was well realised." 

Courier Mail - Mahler 3rd

Suzannah Conway

 

 

"Liane Keegan's Erda remained as rich as her habitat deep in the earth"

Gramaphone

Humphrey McQueen

 

 

"Liane Keegan as Klytemnestra, sings and acts very impressively. Everyone was filled with poison as the composer wished. The role must be sung, not shouted. Hagen will not hear better bel canto singing than this."

Das Orchester

Matthias Norquet

 

 

"Liane Keegan in the grand role of Klytemnestra. The ringing, beautiful, even voice is rich and deep, without artificially making the voice dark. Equally impressive was the height in the voice, full toned without constriction and with great ease."
