Kathryn’s return to the Salzburg festival in Barrie Kosky’s “Orphee aux enfers” was praised widely among reviewers. She “sparkled both vocally and dramatically- she is a natural for such opera buffa or operetta type of roles” (Operaexplorer). Kathryn was lauded as “a terrific actress, a wonderful comedienne and a spectacular singer. She made the production. She was a mysterious force of nature…” (Mark Swed, LA Times). Her “vocal presence is matched by her physical one, pouts and prances, pulls faces and pushes people and furniture around with a vibrancy that is intoxicating. One is left with the sensation in the end that she will be taking over the underworld before too long” (qlorgnette).
