This new season of Opera Australia's Great opera hits is a knockout, and for a variety of reasons....a wonderful showcase for the pure voices of some of Opera Australia's greatest stars. The premiere, for example, featured tenor Simon Kim, baritone Haotian Qi, soprano Danita Weatherstone, and the huge, richly-rounded power of mezzosoprano Celeste Haworth.

Sue Williams, Opera Review, Daily Telegraph



Thanks to her strong stage presence and powerful vocal performance, Celeste Haworth adds greatly to the show as Marie's sister Charlotte, who handles the twists of fate with which her family is confronted better than Marie.

L.E Gerth, Das Opernglas



Celeste Haworth was enchanting in the role of the poem-reciting older sister.

Elenore Büning, Frankfuter Allgemeine Zeitung



Celeste Haworth is in all registers an unusually powerful Charlotte.
