Lyric Coloratura Soprano

Sebatiaan Oosthout and Holly in Nijmegen, Netherlands. 01/20/2024

The Reviews are In! 

"I was impressed with the way Holly Chaplin sang Léontine, the object of Valcour’s affections & mystery gifts. It’s quite different from The Queen of the Night, which I heard her sing in Richmond Hill recently. Léontine also has coloratura and a few high notes, but also dramatic legato passages. It’s a daunting role that sometimes lies low, but Holly was up to it."

"Holly Chaplin’s Queen of the Night was sung as well as I’ve ever heard the role sung, and with the aid of Richmond Hill Centre’s superb acoustics, her pinging coloratura was especially dazzling."

" Holly Chaplin is particularly impressive as Léontine and manages a nice mix of power and agility especially in her big aria in the second half."

John Girks, Opera Ramblings. March 2023.

 "The stand out performance came from soprano Holly Chaplin who charmingly portrayed the devious Susanna, adding several well-placed octaves which showed off her clear, almost bell-like, top register."
-Matthew Timmermans "Voicebox-I due Figaro. Opera Canada. vol.58 no.4.  Winter 2018

"Holly Chaplin, who plays his lady love Cunegonde, bangs those high notes in “Glitter and Be Gay” with the ease of someone flipping an errant hair out of her face. And, like Candide, we get to watch her grow from being a sex object to a wise woman."
-Lynn Slotkin "Review; Candide(Barrie)" Nov.27th 2017
