‘An entertaining and novel take on Mozart’s Così fan tutte – a big hit for Northern Ireland Opera’

The Sunday Times

Music: ★★★★ | Staging: ★★★★★

Opera Now

‘With Hannah Clark’s elegant, art-deco set and flapper-era costumes inking in the sense of period, the fun was underlined by Emma Woods’s knowing, idiomatic movement direction, an Ulster Orchestra in ebullient form under Nicholas Chalmers and a largely young cast that took to the increasingly farcical shenanigans with relish… a significant production for Northern Ireland Opera’

Opera Magazine

‘Fun-filled… A handsome, well sung production’
