Gräfin Mariza - Landestheater Linz - September 2022


"Der kurze Auftritt der jungen Wahrsagerin Manja wird von Karina Jay Bailey präzise und mit einer kleinen Prise Dämonie absolviert."

Night Songs Recital - December 2020

"Bailey completed her Master of Music (Opera) at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in June and this was her first recital since returning to Australia, though her voice betrayed no signs of enforced idleness. With fine support from Yuan, Bailey sang with confidence, subtlety and, when needed, power.

- Chris Reid (Limelight)

Voices and Vines Recital


"[Bailey] is developing an impressive pedigree of roles in operas such as Elaine in George Palmer’s Cloudstreet. Her high notes were assured and reached with ease and confidence and one of the favourites "O mio babbino caro" was a delight to listen to."

"The final trio "Soave sia il vento" from Cosi fan tutte was the perfect dessert to a thoroughly enjoyable evening of voices, wine and great food. My advice is that if you want to have a different evening out, keep your eyes open for other events showcasing our wonderful young singers in our excellent wineries in the beautiful Adelaide Hills."

- Sally Putnam (Stage Whispers)

The Magic Flute - State Opera of South Australia 

"Finally, Papageno finds what he is seeking a Papagena to share his life, and a very talented new face, Karina [Bailey] recently graduated from her studies, who gives him a good run for his money, before finally revealing her real self to him."


- Barry Lenny (BWW) 



A Little Night Music, Hills Musical Company


"[Bailey], a recent graduate from the Elder Conservatorium, lights up the stage and her soprano voice is a delight."


- In Daily



"Supporting players are no less impressive. Karina [Bailey] (as Fredrik’s much younger wife, Anne) successfully manages the difficult tightrope act of being convincingly innocent and naïve, but without coming across as a complete idiot. The tentative “B-plot” romance between Anne and Fredrik’s son, Henrik (played as an endearingly awkward dork by Ian Andrew) is surprisingly sweet, and equally compelling, as these two also have a strong chemistry."


- Benjamin Orchid






The Magic Flute, Elder Conservatorium


"The leads were outstanding" 

"[Bailey] was beautiful as Pamina, a compelling presence."


- Fran Edwards
