Mrs Patrick de Rocher (Dead Man Walking) - March 2023



“Nancy Holt’s anguished portrayal of De Rocher’s mother stands out.”

The Times

“Her extraordinary performance turned a secondary role into something unforgettable.”



“…Nancy Holt almost stole the show. Her stumbling appeal before the Pardon Board was incredibly intense and sincere, and her farewell to her son painfully moving.”

Opera Magazine

Mistress Quickly (Sir John in Love) - August 2022


"When they are joined in a vivacious trio by Nancy Holt’s Mistress Quickly the mischief knows no bounds. Every time Holt enters, the comic thermometer goes up a notch."

Opera Today


"with Nancy Holt a scene-stealing Mistress Quickly, giving Falstaff a run for his money in the comedy stakes."

The Arts Desk


"And when they are joined by Nancy Holt’s Mistress Quickly, the mischief knows no bounds."

The Stage


Jean de Moncerf (Le Portrait de Manon) -November 2022


“Mezzo Nancy Holt also stood out as Jean, showing a pale instrument with appealing pianissimi and fragrant diction. With boyish charm and verve, one could see a Cherubino in the making”


Double Bill: Monteverdi Madrigals (dramatised) - June 2022

“Nancy Holt dazzled (her characterful naturally sited voice and budding personality holding the stage: the “famous actress [who] comes and goes … muse and inspiration”).”
