In this video the audience share their thoughts on the production:
You can read a selection of press reviews and audience reactions below.
What the critics are saying
‘with a sweet, fast vibrato, trills as neat as pinking shears and a prodigious appetite for the texture and flavour of the Italian language, Oropesa holds the performance.’
– The Times
‘an evening of brilliant entertainment’
– The Stage
‘…[Lisette Oropesa] was equal to all her character’s skittish bel canto demands. Hilarious, endearing and blest with immaculate timing, she made the cruel demands of her Act 1 cavatina seem like throwaway lines and single-handedly gave the evening its class.’
‘Andrey Zhilikhovsky’s Malatesta is the smoothest of operators, with the vocal skills to match’
– Financial Times
