Meeta Raval as Liu, Turandot, Puccini 
 
 
Meeta Raval makes Liu's farewell intensely gripping.

- Svenska Dagbladet

On her way to the inevitable finale, the slave-girl Liu takes her own life rather than reveal the prince's name, and sings her incredibly gripping aria. Here it is the british soprano Meeta Raval who performs the aria sublimely.

- Gefle Dagblad

Meeta Raval, in her debut on a swedish stage, gives Liu a beautiful voice ... her pianissimos are gorgeous. 

- Aftonbladet

The young British soprano Meeta Raval was a sensitive Liù and she made the most of her two arias, sung with silvery tone.                                                                                

- Seen and Heard International

Meeta Raval's silver threads in Liu's super high tessitura are memorable

- DT Newspaper


Meeta Raval as Madama Butterfly, Puccini (English National Opera / Mid Wlaes Opera)

 

. . .The casting is strong, if in some ways uneven. It’s a joy to hear Meeta Raval (a finalist in the recent Cardiff Singer of the World) in a complete role, which proves that she is not only a very talented singer but a vocal actress of considerable presence. . .

- Stephen Walsh / The Arts Desk

. . .Meeta Raval portrayed a Butterfly driven by her perceptions, distorted though they be: Raval took everything in her considerable vocal stride, articulating the words of Amanda Holden’s sensitive translation with the utmost clarity. By the final scene, the sense of a creature whose metamorphosis is fated and irreversible was heightened. . .

- Rian Evans / Opera

. . .In the title role, Meeta Raval’s lyric soprano is confident and secure; she makes the transition from mid-teens bride to defiantly proud mother without forcing the tone. . .

- Rian Evans / The Guardian

 . . . Meeta Raval — a recent Cardiff Singer of the World finalist — is fearless as Cio-Cio San, sailing through the demands of the role with mightily impressive security . . .

- Hugo Shirley / The Daily Telegraph
