What the critics are saying

‘Iestyn Davies and Allan Clayton are both in superb voice as David and Jonathan (Davies’s rapturous rendering of the sublime “O God whose mercies numberless” was a musical highlight of the evening)’
★★★★★ Daily Telegraph

‘due to the bang-on precision of the Glyndebourne Chorus, plus the thrilling playing of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under the focused baton of conductor Laurence Cummings, Handel’s music is as well served as the drama.’
★★★★★ The Stage

‘In his house debut as Saul, the baritone Markus Brück creates a forceful picture of unhinged kingship’
The Times

‘This is a show that is never short of gusto.’
Financial Times
