(Review in preparation)

This year's Edinburgh Studio Opera production was as usual in the Assembly Roxy.  All three performances were sold out, giving an indication of the quality of performance expected by the young audience.  The seating capacity is only 180 - surely next year ESO can use a larger venue?

Sung to an English translation by Christopher Cowell, the young cast managed to project their words to a high standard, though the acoustics of the Roxy are difficult. Much depends on where one is sitting, and there is no rake.

The production was effective, appropriate use being made of the central aisle.

Make no mistake about it, this was a fine production and a satisfying ensemble performance given to a high musical standard right from the opening. 

£15; £12; £6.50
