English National Opera


No. of reviews: 12

Intelligent, cogent and, as the sky darkened, properly spooky
2 Jul 18 / The Observer
A brilliantly creepy Turn Of The Screw
30 Jun 18 / Metro
A spook in the park that’s beautiful listening
29 Jun 18 / A Younger Theatre
Not enough spookiness at ghostly chamber opera that hints at child abuse
29 Jun 18 / Ham&High
Knocking it out the (Regent's) Park
28 Jun 18 / Bachtrack
Toby Purser conducts with authority and sensitivity
28 Jun 18 / Classical Source
The singing is superb and one sensed that every member of the capacity audience was spellbound if not spooked
27 Jun 18 / Opera Today
A chillingly convincing revival of Britten's ghostly opera
27 Jun 18 / Telegraph
A stunning reimagination of Britten's ghost opera
27 Jun 18 / What's on Stage
An atmospheric but not especially scary open air outing
26 Jun 18 / Time Out
Britten’s score becomes increasingly suggestive of evil forces insidiously whittling away the sanity of trusting innocents
26 Jun 18 / The Times
Britten's opera chills the spine as darkness falls
26 Jun 18 / The Guardian
