What the critics are saying

‘…a flawlessly crisp and slick performance… Joélle Harvey makes a captivating debut as the skittish kitten Cleopatra, singing with an airy grace matched by her accomplished disco jives.’
★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Glyndebourne at its best just got better’
★★★★★ The Arts Desk

‘a superb ensemble performance’
The Independent

‘American soprano Joélle Harvey… forms part of the strongest cast yet for this production, with no weak link… As for Connolly, she’s still outstanding as Caesar and her ability to negotiate the torrents of virtuoso semiquavers takes the breath away’
Evening Standard

‘…the most entertaining opera production I’ve witnessed.’
