A few reviews…

Wigmore Hall, Wild Plum Arts Recital with Huw Watkins, The Class of 1938 
Schaufer proved the consummate hostess, teacher, and confidante…Schaufer’s generosity of taste and spirit shone through…This was an evening of song – and above all of song in performance. Seen and Heard International

Royal Opera House/Lyric Hammersmith, 4.48 Psychosis – Doctor – Venables world premiere
The roles allotted to soprano Gweneth-Ann Rand and to mezzo Lucy Schaufer could not have fallen into more gifted hands. The Stage

John Wilson Orchestra/BBC Proms – Bernstein: Stage & Screen
Mezzo Lucy Schaufer’s generous tone impressed in Take Care of This House from Bernstein’s notorious Broadway flop 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, as did her theatrical panache as the easily assimilated Old Lady in Candide. The Guardian
Probably the best performance was from Lucy Schaufer, playing Dinah, in ‘Island Magic’ from Trouble in Tahiti. Schaufer required no amplification to fill the Hall and the result was spellbinding. Classical Source

Dallas Opera, Becoming Santa Claus – Ib – (Adamo) world premiere
In roles challenging both vocally and physically, with lots of tight ensemble singing, the four elves are first-rate. Lucy Schaufer is the sturdy Ib, her mezzo well focused and projected. Dallas News

Buxton International Festival, Albert Herring – Florence Pike
Lucy Schaufer’s fruitily censorious Florence Pike was the funniest, most beautifully sung I’ve seen. The Times

Teatro Madrid, Street Scene – Emma Jones
Lucy Schaufer excelled with her poignant voice, clear diction and sardonic tone.  BachTrack
