The Turn of the Screw review
"Carolyn Holt plays Mrs Grose with authority and effortlessly effusive vocal power."

The Return of the Screw: chilling Britten at Garsington Opera
"... the voice is certainly mature enough to cope with the role’s demands. Her deferential acting underlined the often neglected class-bound aspect of this work. Revealing the former Quint-Jessel relationship, she sounded less shocked at “he had his will, morning and night” than at “and she a lady, so far above him.” ”.
