"The jilted Donna Elvira sometimes comes across as a pest by virtue of her stalking the Don and showing up in time to spoil his plans. Camille Gifford, as this rejected and dumped character used her glowing and radiant soprano. The haunting “Mi Tradi” held no fears for her and she sang with ringing tone and much élan. Gifford’s interpretive gifts made Donna Elvira a more sympathetic character."

most satisfying venture this season was provided by its training
arm, the Pittsburgh Opera Center at Duquesne University, in a
fully-staged (with orchestra) Werther, supervised by Regine Crespin,
at Central Caholic High School, December 4 and 5. The young cast,
led on opening night by tenor Walter Pool and mezzo Camille Gifford,
combined healthy vocalism with physical charm."

"Blending nicely with the soprano was mezzo-soprano Camille Gifford as Dorabella. Her rich, seductive tone made one regret the cutting of her second act aria, as well as the nose-blowing business imposed on her first. In the trio, especially, the floated high notes of both women pulled at the heart…"

"'Hotel Eden', conducted by Michel Singher in performances on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday nights at the Reimann Opera Theater of New York University, is
scored colorfully for a small chamber orchestra fortified with synthesizer. The
singers, taking multiple roles, were on the whole impressive, especially Rod
Nelman, Camille Gifford and Ceilia Tucker."
The New York Times
"There were strong supporting performances from Camille Gifford (as Emilia) and
James Wood (as Ludovico)."
Kansas City Star
"Camille Gifford's beautiful mezzo-soprano was well suited to the gypsy fortune
teller, Zaida. She was equally effective working with Fiorilla and her love,
"Especially pleasing was the soprano of Marjorie McClean's Fiorilla (Danielle Strauss sings the demanding role tonight) and the lusty mezzo of Camille Gifford's gypsy girl, Zaida."
