  • ..the Lucretia of the young Scottish mezzo Rowan Hellier is totally gripping, neurotically yet credibly acted, superbly sung in a rich, expressive contralto-like timbre.
    — Richard Morrison, The Times
  • Mezzo Rowan Hellier makes a noble, troubled Penelope, her rich lyric tone a huge asset.
    — George Hall, The Stage
  • As Adriano..the lovely richness of her tone gave stature to the Emperor despite his fickle caprices, while in higher registers her voice shone beautifully.
    — Claire Seymour, Opera Today
  • Mezzo soprano Rowan Hellier was compelling, with her rich, matt velvet tone, as she performed these haunted and expressive melodies with focus, drama and clarity.
    — Rosenna East, The Herald
