No. of reviews: 9

Some absolute howlers in the production department do their utmost to derail the affair
12 Oct 13 / This is South Wales
Welsh National Opera's Tudor trilogy could test the stamina of cast and audience alike
22 Sep 13 / The Observer
WNO’s Maria Stuarda fails to communicate spirit of Tudor England
19 Sep 13 / Seen and Heard
3 Tudor queens, each with her own unhappy ending
18 Sep 13 / New York Times
Musically and vocally there’s some pleasure to be had
17 Sep 13 / The Stage
16th-century England meets 19th-century Europe in this misguided production of Donizetti's Tudor opera
17 Sep 13 / The Guardian
WNO production takes too many liberties with the work
16 Sep 13 / Wales Online
Second episode in WNO's Donizetti Tudor cycle has musical style but is coarsely directed
15 Sep 13 / The Arts Desk
Even this terrible staging of Donizetti's opera failed to detract from Judith Howard's superb singing
15 Sep 13 / Telegraph
