“a super actress and a lovely voice" (The Independent)

"Tara Bungard has an excellent voice. Breath control, placement and projection of the sounds into the massive cathedral were perfect. She coloured the songs from the Auvergne beautifully and when she reached Bailèro there was an intake of breath from the audience as this very popular song floated through the huge building exquisitely – a real spine-chilling affair. We are very fortunate to have this singer in our midst." (Ely Standard)

“The sweet-voiced Gianetta was Tara Overend” (Opera)

“a radiant Pamina” (Music and Vision)

“a magnificent, flowing soprano solo from the excellent Tara Bungard” (Ham and High)

"Tara Overend (Fiordiligi)'s voice was particularly delightful and Emma Mabin (Dorabella)'s duets with her were a highpoint of the night."

"The tender, passionate Act I duet with Tara Overend (Servilia) proved to be one of the musical highlights of the opera. "
