‘Opera-goers found themselves captivated by one of the best nights Glyndebourne has enjoyed in many a year. --Financial Times

' simply superb playing from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, absolutely precise, perfectly balanced - I don’t believe I have ever heard brass play so softly. or to such effect. ‘--Opera

"...the endlessly expressive music brims with jokes. Ensembles tie themselves in knots, grown men sing cheep-cheep, ding-dong doggerel and an air of lunacy prevails. Hall’s answer is to exercise restraint, even in the mad set pieces... this sober approach turned out to be sharp and amusing.’ --Evening Standard

'With its simple, elegant designs and a powerful storm sequence, the production is a joy to watch and hear.’ --Sunday Express
