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.’
– WhatsOnStage

‘Andrey Zhilikhovsky’s Malatesta is the smoothest of operators, with the vocal skills to match’
– Financial Times
