Anna Picard writing in The Times and Barry Millington in the Evening Standard both give L’Ospedale  4-starsreviews.

As the lovelorn Innamorato Rebecca Moon displayed a smooth legato line in what was possibly the highlight of the evening, a drawn out lament that would not have sounded out of place in a Cavalli opera and with rhetoric that had echoes of Ottone’s aria in Poppea.  Opera Britannia

The singing, and acting, was outstanding, both as soloists and in the many choruses. Notably amongst the patients, on account of their particularly extended ‘mad scenes’, were Rebecca Moon as the lovesick Innamorato and Michal Czerniawski as the Art Brut artist Matto.   Early Music reviews

It is beautifully sung by this cast whose performances add an extra layer of dramatic interpretation to the charming baroque polyphony.  British Theatre Guide

What this space (Wilton’s Music Hall) does bring to the staging is a wonderful acoustic – studio-clean for solo singing, while ensemble passages ring with church-like resonance. Those 19th-century builders really knew what they were about. A superb cast makes the hall work its hardest for them. The Arts Desk

It is executed with precision and confidence by a talented group of singers…… the vocal passages of polyphony are sung astoundingly. Theatre, Dance & Opera Reviews

Rose Maybud  –  Ruddigore (Gilbert & Sullivan) Charles Court Opera

16574283462_7020a409b4_z

Completing the “distaff side”, as her quaint, etiquette-obsessed, Bible-spouting character might have put it, is Rebecca Moon as Rose Maybud, a charming evocation of keep-your-distance, come-hither confusion in a delicious double act with Matthew Kellett’s baronet-as-farmer, the apogee of false modesty (prize for topsy-turvydom in the always sparkling dialogue: “Ah, you’ve no idea what a poor opinion I have of myself, and how little I deserve it”  David Nice – The Arts Desk

Her voice clear, supple and light, Rebecca Moon seems perfectly suited to this genre and to the role of Rose Maybud, the cold, proud and calculating maiden with a textbook for a conscience. Rose is not the most appealing of characters, but Moon unearths all the comedy of the part with skilful acting, revealing Rose’s tinpot morality through detailed phrasing of both her sung and spoken lines. Bachtrack

Kate The Yeomen of the Guard (Gilbert & Sullivan) Philharmonia – Royal Festival Hall

“….thumbs up too for Rebecca Moon, only in for a brief while as the Dame’s niece, but with a pure, honey-sweet voice that I’d love to smear on toast.”  Geoff Brown – The Arts Desk

“It was the ensembles that came off best, Rebecca Moon riding high in ‘Strange Adventure’ as Kate, a character drafted in just for this quartet.” Nick Breckenfield  – Classical Source

The Wife -The Juniper Tree – UK premier of Philip Glass’s Opera – Hammond Theatre

“The Wife – accurate and stylish” – Keith Potter – Opera Magazine

“Played with a defenceless simplicity, Soprano Rebecca Moon instilled the part with a sense of poignancy, reinforced in the depiction of death coming as veiled silent figures who bore her away” – Mark Aspen

Messiah – Todmorden – Rebecca Moon – who makes it sound easy – sang the serene ” I know that my Redeemer liveth” – Diana Forrest – Live Review

Jennifer- Do I Hear a Waltz (Richard Rodgers) – Park Theatre London – “We’re Gonna Be All Right”, the catchiest number (and most-often performed in cabaret), gives the warring younger couple Eddie and Jennifer (Matthew Kellett and the excellent Rebecca Moon) their big moment.  Jeremy Chapman Musical Theatre Review 

Rebecca Moon received the Patrick Fyffe – Dame Hilda Bracket – award for comedy in opera at Sadler’s Wells for her portrayal of Mary in Opera North’s production of Gershwin’s Of Thee I Sing.
