"Claire Delaney was simply awesome. Such a beautiful voice and the auditorium was filled with a powerful, emotional performance that touched my very soul. A highly skilled, talented and versatile performer" (Simon Winkler, Dragon Personal Management)
"A phenomenal performer, not just a vocalist and not just a classical singer, but an enigmatic, effervescent storyteller. Claire doesn't just have an ability to deliver emotive and enthralling performances, she has an innate passion and commitment to both melody and text, story and audience and it is this combination which makes Claire a truly remarkable and beautiful performer. My only regret is that I have not witnessed more of her stagecraft." ★★★★★ (Daniel O'Gorman, Director of Mercury Artist Management)
"Miss Delaney's performance of Christine Daae captivated the audience; her flawless acting and haunting voice were engrossing, offering an intelligent, charismatic heroine within seconds of her setting foot on the stage. Her beautiful voice was the talk of the audience" (Claire Hovey, Theatre Critic)
