Buxton Festival


No. of reviews: 7

Intense, modern version of Gluck's 1762 Italian opera
21 Jul 14 / Planet Hugill
Much of the work’s emotional content comes from the pit
20 Jul 14 / Gloucestershire Echo
Stephen Medcalf’s staging underlines the simplicity of Gluck’s musico-dramatic schema
19 Jul 14 / Financial Times (via Google)
A great classical story gets an update at Buxton Festival
17 Jul 14 / Seen and Heard
A lovely rendering of Gluck’s music under the baton of Stuart Stratford
16 Jul 14 / Mark Ronan's Theatre Reviews
Michael Chance's Orfeo is patchy, but Barbara Bargnesi's wounded Euridice is entrancingly sung
15 Jul 14 / The Guardian
Love reigns in Buxton's Orfeo ed Euridice, but at what cost?
14 Jul 14 / Bachtrack
