‘The best of the singing came from the British-Australian Mezzo Indyana Schneider as Dorinda, with a clear creamy voice, and lively expressive acting.'
OPERA MAGAZINE, SEPTEMBER 2019
'A fabulous young mezzo, the voice full of crimson depth and character'
OPERA MAGAZINE, OCTOBER 2018
'A perennial audience favourite, the Peachums three compete for audience laughs, with Mrs. Peachum (Indyana Schneider) in particular stunning with a powerful operatic vocal.'
THE OXFORD STUDENT, MARCH 2017
'For me, the standout performance was that of Indyana Schneider - a gloriously accomplished Feste… Rarely can such a gifted singer have donned the mantel of Olivia’s fool, adding a glorious extra dimension to the characterisation.'
BAFTA-AWARD WINNING PETER KOSMINSKY, 2016
‘Amongst some impressive soloists Indyana Schneider, as ‘the Plaint’… perhaps emerged as the most striking… [she] really captured the spirit of Purcell, and sang with a fine combination of authority and delicacy.’
THEATRE MAGAZINE, 2016
'Perhaps most impressive was Indyana Schneider – fresh from the Sydney Opera House – as a Carlotta that was at once terrifying and hilarious.'
THE CHERWELL, 2016
'In an astonishingly talented cast, this production presented an outstanding Carlotta: the Sydney Opera House veteran Indyana Schneider, who for the occasion adopted a most hilariously on-point Italian accent and accompanying diva attitude. Her singing was outrageously wild, as the role demands, while remaining so skilled and accomplished that she received applause so enthusiastic (and so early) that the Phantom’s voice was initially drowned out.'
