“[Martha Jones’s] warm, sinuous mezzo is alone worth the price of a ticket.” (Classical Source)

“Martha Jones.... lights the show with the lunar beauty of her mezzo.” (The Times)

 Martha Jones was a delight as the infectious and titular cat.  She consistently held the ear and eye with a magnetism that easily charmed. (David Truslove, Opera Today)

Martha Jones' Cat is the mainstay here: suitably feline with a touch of know-all swagger, never overdoing the plumed sombrero and thigh-boots flamboyance. Her flexible mezzo uses a range of colours to most telling effect; moments of quasi-purring or mewing, never histrionic, are mimicked by the violin in Lyness’s neat reduction of the score, in which the glockenspiel adds shimmer.  (Rian Evans, The Guardian)
