Hart carried this emotionally and technically demanding title role with dramatic sensitivity. - Fringe Opera (Anna Bolena, 2016)
I led the orchestra for Hashtag Opera's Giovanna d'Arco, with Rochelle in the title role, in 2015. She is a consummate operatic soprano and compelling performer; I look forward to working with her again (and am scheduled to do so in March 2016!).Martin Ash 11 January 2016
