A disappointing performance by Opera North
26 Nov 12 / Impact
This new Faust makes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening
23 Oct 12 / Opera Britannia
A Wall St spin on Gounod's damned opera
21 Oct 12 / Independent on Sunday
Opera is more exciting than this
21 Oct 12 / The Observer
When the budget is this tight, you have to wonder whether a concert performance might do the job better
21 Oct 12 / The York Press
Peter Auty takes the title role with eloquence and assurance
20 Oct 12 / Independent
Stuart Stratford’s conducting is distinguished
16 Oct 12 / The Stage
The fact that this production packs a punch is entirely due to Gounod
16 Oct 12 / Financial Times (via Google)
Opera North's staging of Gounod's Faust is ghastly
16 Oct 12 / Telegraph
Classy vocal performances battle it out with spectacular visuals
15 Oct 12 / The Arts Desk
Opera North may well have a controversy on their hands, though it's not an artistic success
15 Oct 12 / The Guardian
