As Sarah Miles in the Bay Area Premiere of Jake Heggie's THE END OF THE AFFAIR - 2014
"As Sarah Miles in The End of the Affair, soprano Carrie Hennessey took my breath away. A consummate actress and radiant singer, she inhabited every corner of this very demanding and difficult role completely, honestly and with great passion. It was a brave, affecting, deeply moving performance. I hope I have the chance again to hear her do this role, and many others, very soon." - Jake Heggie, Composer
"With her strong lyricism and impressive stage presence, soprano Carrie Hennessey gave voice — and body — to Sarah’s fears and frustration, her yearning for Maurice, dreams about what could be, and her newfound religious fervor."
"Soprano Carrie Hennessey made a dynamic impression as Sarah, singing with clarity and shading her character with an apt mix of earthly desire and ethereal longing"
