Susannah Biller "irresistible" in "Dinner at Eight" at Wexford Festival Opera


"Soprano Susannah Biller was irresistible as Kitty Packard (the role that was played by Jean Harlow in the movie), the airhead and unfaithful wife of Dan Packard (tenor Craig Irvin), wearing frilly dressing gowns all day and eating chocolates in bed from a huge, heart-shaped box in her moments of frustrations. And that’s the women who steal the show. Their vanities and vain preoccupations are exposed for everybody’s entertainment, but not too much frowned upon by the authors; instead, they are told about with a sympathetic and complicit eye.” -Bachtrack by Pia Maltri Read full review.

“Members of a uniformly strong ensemble, outstanding are...Susannah Biller in the (in the movie) Jean Harlow role of Kitty Pickard.” -The Stage by George Hall Read full review.

“A large cast produced sharp, sometimes moving cameos, among them were...Susannah Biller as the gold-digging floozy.” -The Times
