The Magic Flute
Music Theatre Kernow at Bloomsbury Theatre, London

Nicola-Jane Kemp had the range and fullness for The Queen of the Night, a Joanna Lumley figure in screaming scarlet ....

Christ on the Mount of Olives
London Soloist Chamber Orchestra at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London

Nicola-Jane Kemp (a creditable Queen of the Night in the first half) was a scintillating soprano Seraph....
Stephen Johnson - The Independent


Punch and Judy
Music Theatre Wales

Nicola-Jane Kemp rose fearlessly to the demands of Pretty Polly's role....
Barry Millington - The Times

Punch from time-to-time rides his cock-horse in search of Pretty Polly. Polly herself, bravely sung by Nicola-Jane Kemp, is all crazy coloratura, and hence dressed in canary yellow. More doll than person, she allows some kind of redemption....
Nick Kimberley - The Independent

..Pretty Polly, a skittish coloratura role sung nimbly by Nicola-Jane Kemp...
Fiona Maddocks - The Observer
(also voted in top 10 Critics Choice in Arts review of the Year)

The singers are first-rate...Nicola-Jane Kemp's accurate, pretty coloratura....
David Murray - The Financial Times

The acting, ritualistically exaggerated to exactly the right degree, and the singing were harrowingly expressive....Nicola-Jane Kemp's Pretty Polly...negotiated Birtwistle's tortuous though sometimes rhapsodic lines with commendable sureness.....
Stephen Petitt - Opera Magazine

But best of all in this talented company is Nicola-Jane Kemp as Pretty Polly, sparkling in coloratura, her highest notes scintillating with innocent allure. Her final springtime duet with Punch has the magical lyricism of Tippett's Midsummer Marriage.
Christopher Morley - The Birmingham Post

L’Amore Industrioso
Opera Holland Park

Wednesday’s premiere was jinxed by illness: the female lead was voiceless, and the heroine of the evening was Nicola-Jane Kemp, who sight-read a long, elaborate role from the pit.
Rodney Milnes - The Times

....the leading soprano was indisposed, so that at minimal notice, Nicola-Jane Kemp sang from the fact, Kemp sang well.....
Nick Kimberley - The Independent
