Strauss

Elektra / 21 October 2015

Carnegie Hall / Boston Symphony Orchestra

"Jane Henschel conveyed the royal agonies of Klytämnestra with vivid exclamation enhanced by poignant restraint. " Martin Bernheimer, Financial Times, 23 October 2015
"Jane Henschel ... sang Klytämnestra’s punishing music with clarity and ear-perfect pitch and played off Elektra’s madness with her own – this was a fearless confrontation, topped with a cruel laugh that seemed to drive Elektra even madder." Robert Levine, Bachtrack, 22 October 2015
"Jane Henschel...gave an incisive dignity to the tortured queen and alternated pin-pointedly accurate singing with penetrating sprechstimme" Huffington Post, 28 October 2015

Wagner

Das Rheingold

Jahrhunderthalle Bochum

"...hält der Abend zwei große Momente bereit. Einen davon schenkt uns Jane Henschel als Erda, deren Bühnenpräsenz an Magie und deren brillant geführter, warmer Alt an ein Wunder grenzen." Kultur-Extra, Heiko Schon, 22 September 2015

Alice in Wonderland

Los Angeles Philharmonic, Walt Disney Concert Hall

"The Queen of Hearts seems to have stepped out of a grand opera in an alternative universe, and soprano Jane Henschel was a delight."
Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times, 1 March 2015
"But it was Jane Henschel who trumped them all as the beautifully irrational Queen of Hearts. Her commanding Brünnhilde-esque soprano and persona were just right in a role which can hardly be overdone."
Jim Farber, San Francisco Classical Voice, 3 March 2015

STRAUSS

Salome: 6 March 2014

Boston Symphony Orchestra/Andris Nelsons: Symphony Hall, Boston

"mezzo-soprano Jane Henschel brought power and presence to the role of Herodias" Jeremy Eichler / Boston Globe / 7 March 2014
"As Queen Herodias, Jane Henschel brought a rich mezzo-soprano tone to a role of one-liners where it had little chance to bloom, but she struck some fine, angry sparks off Siegel’s Herod as the action neared its tragic climax."

David Wright / Boston Classical Review / 7 March 2014
"Jane Henschel gave a strong and well-characterized performance"

Susan Stempleski / classicalsource.com / 7 March 2014

STRAUSS

Salome

Carnegie Hall

"The veteran American mezzo-soprano Jane Henschel was wonderful as Herodias, Salome’s scheming mother." New York Times, Anthony Tommasini, 2 March 2014

STRAUSS

Elektra

Verizon Hall, Philadelphia

"Jane Henschel’s mezzo, extremely powerful and communicative, was the rarest of pleasures. Here is a singer for whom all musical decision flows from the text — with a low range that seems to come with its own resonance chamber." The Inquirer, Peter Dobrin, 12 May 2012
