“Absolutely brilliant! A superb evening's entertainment. (We) enjoyed this even more than operas at the RoH, G Live and open-air operas in Italy. The singers and pianist were great, the acting terrific, and it was wonderful to be so close to the action, as normally the audience cannot see facial expressions.”

“Fantastic night. Just the right balance between serious and professional singing and humour.”

“My wife bought the tickets for me. She does not really like opera. Nonetheless, we both thoroughly enjoyed the event. The performances and the singing were great and the story-telling made the opera themes much more understandable and accessible. Well done all. Very good show!”
