"Heather Roberts played the Witch relatively straight, engaging in evil cackles and vocal effects. This mezzo has an impressive range from the bottom of her chest voice all the way to the very top."

"Kate Pinkerton has only a few lines but Heather Roberts warm sympathetic mezzo revealed her character to be an innocent part of a chain of events that she was not responsible for."

"The excellent cast of this performance argued well for establishing Edgar in the standard cannon of Puccini’s operas... The largest female role however is that of the sultry, evil, and jaded gypsy temptress Tigrana, who leads Edgar down the path of moral debauchery and decay. Any mezzo would “kill” to sing this role. Heather Roberts was riveting in the part. She too has an enormous and powerful voice, and she apparently has no trouble even with the top C. Her descents into chest voice were cavernous. She was truly thrilling and made a distinct impression on the audience.."
