Julian Philips’s chamber opera, The Yellow Sofa, is a creaking affair at Glyndebourne
9 Nov 12 / Telegraph
Visually compelling, with strong singing across the board
7 Nov 12 / Classical Source
At 75 minutes, The Yellow Sofa is already a very short opera, but an even shorter one is struggling to get out
20 Oct 12 / Financial Times (via Google)
The Yellow Sofa has a sensitive, atmospheric score but the opera fails to spring into life
19 Oct 12 / Telegraph
At 80 minutes, the piece feels on the long side
17 Oct 12 / The Stage
Too much of the score slides into adept anonymity
17 Oct 12 / The Guardian
