‘Visually and musical arresting… a strong musical experience.’

The Stage

‘Continues a tradition of exposing audiences to opera that challenges and entertains.’

Opera Journal

‘There are flamboyant costumes and characters, fabulous singing and sets, a story that entertains, and a wealth of local talent throwing themselves into the performance.’

Alan in Belfast

“It is during the musical numbers, performed wonderfully by the cast and a band… that the production excels. This is where Walter Sutcliffe gets the best from his cast and turns the play’s generic ambiguity into a strength.”
