Reviews of Allyson's debut as Carmen with Pacific Opera

"Mezzo-soprano Allyson McHardy is singing the title role for the first time here. Her Carmen is proud and defiant, languidly sensual but also quick to ignite, though fundamentally decent, and there is both smoke and fire in her voice." (Times Colonist, 18 February 2012)

"In her role debut as Carmen, mezzo Allyson McHardy displayed a gorgeous tone." (Monday Magazine, 22 February 2012)

"Allyson McHardy plays a lovely Carmen. She's quite petite but she's a real spitfire. And she really comes on and takes control." (CBC On The Island, 22 February 2012)
