The Spectator
"A terrific night of opera as real human drama, with plenty to think about as you picked your way out through a Dalston Lane police cordon and back to the Overground."

The Stage
"Intriguing, beautifully sung, female-led operatic double bill performed with great skill and sympathy"

The Reviews Hub

"In accordance with their philosophy, Barefoot strips down both works to the basics of body, breath, movement and sound. In doing so they bring out unexpected correspondences between these two operas, written nearly 150 years apart."

Broadway World
"You fight the urge to leap forward to intervene and set them on the road to happiness."
