Tippett's music in all its odd glory, with blazing music but a dog's dinner of a libretto
23 Aug 13 / The Arts Desk
Tippett’s first opera is staged at Royal Albert Hall
21 Aug 13 / New York Times
It's hard to imagine the piece receiving a better performance than it did here
20 Aug 13 / What's on Stage
Tippett’s libretto is so much psychobabble, but his score bursts with radiant musical ideas
20 Aug 13 / Financial Times (via Google)
An admirable semi-staging by Kenneth Richardson and BBC forces under Andrew Davis
20 Aug 13 / Evening Standard
A semi-staged performance of Michael Tippett's opera was wonderfully rich
19 Aug 13 / Telegraph
Musically, it’s a rewarding listen
19 Aug 13 / Opera Britannia
Sporting no baton, Davis scored a personal triumph
18 Aug 13 / Classical Source
