Gianni Schicci fairly zips along under conductor Manlio Benzi
7 Jul 12 / The Oxford Times
If you were ever in doubt that opera could be hilarious then Gianni Schicchi will convince you
5 Jul 12 / Telegraph
There was method in this pairing of a minor rarity with Puccini’s brilliantly written comedy
3 Jul 12 / Financial Times (via Google)
Gianni Schicchi can't fail, and it didn't
28 Jun 12 / Musical Pointers
Martin Lloyd-Evans directs his strong ensemble cast with good humour and breeziness
28 Jun 12 / What's on Stage
Comatose conducting and a slack production with no farcical momentum
27 Jun 12 / Telegraph
Martin Lloyd-Evans’s staging works a treat
26 Jun 12 / The Stage
Alan Opie's stubbled Schicchi is vocally smooth, but rough and roguish in persona
26 Jun 12 / Music OMH
Comedy was right at the forefront
26 Jun 12 / Seen and Heard
Comically effective and altogether delightful
26 Jun 12 / Opera Britannia
A Mascagni/Puccini double bill
25 Jun 12 / The Guardian
This over-farcical production is singularly unfunny
