Albert Herring proves to be fun
29 Oct 12 / The Opera Critic
There was much to enjoy, as the audience emphatically did

Some of the humour was lost through lack of audibility of the libretto
15 Oct 12 / Opera Britannia
Albert Herring is deftly drawn in Christopher Rolls's period-costume production
14 Oct 12 / Independent on Sunday
English Touring Opera’s new production has the sense neither to overplay nor to undercut its quaint charm

Memorable portrayal of small town life in Albert Herring
9 Oct 12 / Seen and Heard
Sweet-voiced tenor Mark Wilde is ideally cast in the title role

ETO's production of Albert Herring is disturbingly sardonic rather than downright farcical

Britten’s opera is an entertaining pick-me-up in times of austerity

The Union Jack bunting looks awfully familiar
