La Calisto


“Teresa Pells was here the touchingly submissive Calisto” Margaret Davies for Opera Magazine 

“Calisto (Teresa Pells) was wonderfully engaging, with great vocal agility.”  Marjorie Larkin for Everything Theatre

"...the central role of Calisto (was sung) feistily”  Michael White for Ham and High


In 2014 I performed the title role of Calisto, by Francesco Cavalli, directed skillfully by Joe Austin and musical director Oliver-John Ruthven.
