Rigoletto para gentlemen
13 Mar 14 / Mundo Clásico (Spanish)
This is a must see for the singing if no other reason
12 Mar 14 / Musical Criticism
‘Rigoletto,’ uprooted and retold
20 Feb 14 / New York Times
A rather bland new Rigoletto
18 Feb 14 / The Opera Critic
A compelling critique of socio-sexual relations with resonances for the modern Bullingdon age
18 Feb 14 / Evening Standard
Christopher Alden’s production for ENO is powerful and hallucinatory
17 Feb 14 / Financial Times (via Google)
The highest accolades go to Quinn Kelsey who oozes presence as the torn and disturbed figure

Old sins, the saying goes, cast long shadows
15 Feb 14 / The Arts Desk
Musically this Rigoletto has a lot going for it
15 Feb 14 / Classical Source
This ENO staging starts enthrallingly but leaves us hopelessly lost
15 Feb 14 / Telegraph
This stylish production is certainly eye-catching and musically strong
15 Feb 14 / Opera Britannia
ENO's itch for newness may come at a price
15 Feb 14 / Independent
The Coliseum has a new court jester as Miller's Mafiosi make way for Christopher Alden's not-so-gentlemen's club
15 Feb 14 / What's on Stage
Quinn Kelsey offers a Rigoletto of star quality
15 Feb 14 / The Stage
Christopher Alden's production of Verdi's opera lacks dramatic and musical intensity
15 Feb 14 / The Guardian
English National Opera’s Rigoletto at the Coliseum is not Verdi good
15 Feb 14 / Metro
A two-star production of a five-star opera
15 Feb 14 / Express
