A remarkable production by an exceptional company

What on earth were Britten and W.H Auden thinking of when they created Paul Bunyan?
27 Feb 14 / Opera Britannia
Britten and Auden's exuberant American opera is as fun as Rodgers and Hammerstein
22 Feb 14 / Telegraph
Britten’s youthful stab at popular entertainment is deservedly revived
21 Feb 14 / Financial Times (via Google)
Another rarity from English Touring Opera as Benjamin Britten's first stage work heads out on tour
21 Feb 14 / What's on Stage
Britten’s first foray into the operatic
19 Feb 14 / The Arts Desk
ETO's fine performance can't entirely mask the self-conscious quality of Britten's early 'operetta'
19 Feb 14 / The Guardian
A production of Britten’s ‘choral operetta’ Paul Bunyan whose homespun charm would melt a heart of stone
18 Feb 14 / Independent
