ArtsDesk by Richard Bratby

“…fascinating individual performances, as well as energetic (if occasionally raw) support from Laurence Cummings and The English Concert in the pit.”

“…as Celia the sunlight that radiated from Fflur Wyn’s singing lit up the stage – as it always does.”

“Rebecca Bottone, as Silla’s unwilling lust-object Giunia … finding a piercing emotional intensity in her Act Three aria Fra i pensir – one of the score’s verifiable moments of 24 carat genius.”

“Pierard, …, achieved a comparable focus and a haunting poignancy in another, Act Two’s Ah se a morir,”
