"This is a wholesale reinvention, borderline outrageous yet never crossing the line into artistic insolence, and it has a genuinely good chance of achieving that elusive Grail of creating new audiences for opera....The result is clever and satisying." What's On Stage****

"an inspired English reimagining" The Independant****

"The results are inventive, piquant and sometimes exquisite." Evening Standard***
