No. of reviews: 16

There are no weak links in the cast
5 Aug 15 / British Theatre
An excellent production by Aylin Bozok reflects the exoticism of the work
22 Jul 15 / Mark Ronan's Theatre Reviews
Musically, the opera works beautifully
19 Jul 15 / Express
Delibes’ Lakmé at Holland Park is visually soporific
16 Jul 15 / The Spectator
A performance that is worth catching for its rarity value and lyrical vocalism
15 Jul 15 / Opera Today
Love story fails to bridge divide
14 Jul 15 / Evening Standard
Lakmé has the cut and cloth of an operetta rather than an opera
14 Jul 15 / What's on Stage
Overall the simple staging is highly effective
13 Jul 15 / Music OMH
Though played and sung well, the production is dramatically tepid
13 Jul 15 / Financial Times (via Google)
A strong production of an uneven work distinguished by some very strong singing
13 Jul 15 / Opera Britannia
This gem of the French operatic repertory was beautifully sung and sensitively played
11 Jul 15 / Telegraph
About as authentically Indian as a tikka masala but perfectly cooked nevertheless
11 Jul 15 / Independent
Finely sung but unambitious
11 Jul 15 / The Guardian
In purely musical terms, there is little with which to find fault
11 Jul 15 / Classical Source
Delibes’ romance makes a positive impression in Aylin Bozok’s new staging
11 Jul 15 / The Stage
Shorn of excess exoticism
11 Jul 15 / Bachtrack
