‘Jacqueline Dias…sang the two soprano solos in the work with great skill and fluency.’ Israel in Egypt/Handel (John Manning, Herts Advertiser, November 2013)
‘The chorus soon gave way to the light, effervescent voice of Jacqueline Dias. Jacqueline gave a good account of herself … fulfilling this youthful, romantic role with delightful charm and elegance.’
Acis and Galatea/Handel (St Albans and Harpenden Review)
