As a whole the production is charming with some great ideas
31 Jul 15 / A Younger Theatre
WNO’s Peter Pan fails to do justice to J M Barrie’s tale
29 Jul 15 / Seen and Heard
Inventive Pan flies high in a treat for the whole family
28 Jul 15 / Evening Standard
Once again, this is a brilliant score from Mr Ayres
27 Jul 15 / Opera Britannia
Richard Ayres' Peter Pan comes to London
27 Jul 15 / Planet Hugill
All told the evening was full of admirable intent and ambition – sadly not realised 100-percent effectively
13 Jun 15 / Classical Source
Keith Warner’s staging has energy, is visually entertaining and well sung
2 Jun 15 / The Stage

27 May 15 / Seen and Heard
Half-brilliant, half-bewildering
22 May 15 / The Spectator
Leaving J.M.Barrie dangling: High-flying Peter Pan at Welsh National Opera
19 May 15 / Bachtrack
This flat-footed operatic adaptation of JM Barrie's classic won't do Peter Pan's reputation any favours
18 May 15 / Telegraph
A misguided venture
18 May 15 / Wales Online
Too many loose ends, too many shortcuts. This doesn’t fly
18 May 15 / The Guardian
Keeping balance as Peter Pan
An encounter with Iestyn Morris.
Peter Pan the opera: my awfully big adventure
Countertenor Iestyn Morris is recreating the role of Peter Pan in Richard Ayres’ opera for its UK premiere. What does it feel like to be the singer who has clocked up the most flight hours in Europe?
