Tynan’s extraordinarily intrepid performance surely crosses into realms where no opera singer has gone before.
The Times, June 2016
Sarah Tynan maintained a superb poise and lovely tone, whilst being scarcely less acrobatic than the acrobats.
The Telegraph, June 2016
Tynan was also excellent, delivering Britten’s settings with great incisiveness and carrying off with panache what the staging required of her, which included being lifted aloft herself at the end.
Guardian, June 2016
Then there's Sarah Tynan's 25 minutes of pure-toned perfection in the cycle – the best account of Les Illuminations I've heard since Felicity Lott (although she, as I recall, remained earthbound). Tynan sings in impeccable French, can waft a gown and sing up a storm, and her physical derring-do is above and beyond the call of duty. What a performance.

Les Illuminations - Aldeburgh
Sarah Tynan's Ginevra (her first) married sincerity of demeanor and sweetness of vocal address - this is a role in which Tynan deserves to go far.
Opera April 2016
Sarah Tynan's Ginevra is dignified and ardent, her voice luminous and agile.
Guardian February 2016
Tynan navigates Ginevra's mad scene with pathos and intelligence, dancing as stylishly as she sings.
The Times February 2016
Ariodante - Scottish Opera
Sarah Tynan's Lulu-esque Manon is the best thing she has done.
The Sunday Times March 2014
Tynan's Manon is heartless and spineless, a human void - but one who sings with an icy clarity and accuracy that makes her irresistible. Her performance is first rate.
