Reviews

Jane Shuttleworth, Bachtrack ****
“Joe Austin’s ravishing new production”

“These days the sexual politics of Mozart’s operas make uncomfortable viewing, and Austin and his team did a good job of keeping us aware of this, without overdoing it, and strong comic acting throughout the supporting cast provided a foil to the opera’s darker side.”

Rupert Christianson, Daily Telegraph ****
“A happy inauguration for Nevill Holt’s splendid new home”

George Hall, The Stage ****

Sam Smith, MusicOMH ****

“There are a host of excellent touches”
