Ruth Kerr Tosca






LA TRAVIATA – Violetta

“Kerr, who was stunning throughout, both vocally and in appearance, comfortably handled the rigours of this difficult part.”  Sevenoaks Chronicle

“Ruth Kerr was an almost perfect Violetta, quietly and intelligently acted with a subtle balance of nobility and pathos. Her singing was admirably firm and coursed the challenging coloratura passages with ease and control.” Surrey Comet

“Ruth Kerr….is a fine and assured singer and carried the cast along magnificently.”  Richmond and Twickenham Times

ROSALINE – Die Fledermaus

“One of Kentish Opera's best productions to date. This intelligent, vigorous and polished company seems to go from strength to strength. ... Ruth Kerr's full toned Rosalinde [was] a highlight.”  Roderic Dunnett, Opera

MADAME BUTTERFLY – Madame Butterfly

“The young graceful soprano Ruth Kerr ... was delightful as the vulnerable and self-deluded Butterfly, her voice tremulous when expecting the return of the cad Pinkerton, yet soaring when she showed her determination to save her son, if not herself.”  Herald Scotland


“Retenez ce nom: Ruth Kerr... elle pourrait devenir d'ici peu des stars du lyrique.” Le Journal du Dimanche, France


"Elvis on the radio, a white picket fence and a beautiful gal (Ruth Kerr) as wholesome as Doris Day. [Humanvoice's production for the Brighton Festival] was more Oklahoma than Leipzig. A clever theatrical device to place Schumann's bitter-sweet song cycle of a young widow looking back at her life. However the story is carried totally by Robert Scuhmann's music, immaculately sung and recorded here by Ruth Kerr herself (piano) and Emma Menzies (violin).

Daring theatre is good, but dare more, go the whole way! I didn't quite believe an American housewife singing Schumann in German. Believable? It's a world class piece of musical theatre!"  Latest-7 Magazine

AIDA – Aida

“Ruth Kerr created a magical and sensitive portrayal… the death scene that closes the opera was as emotional as any I have seen.”  Kentish Times


“The soprano (Ruth Kerr) sang effortlessly – soaring above both choir and orchestra.”  Mid Sussex Times
