“A sustained delight. Neil Jenkins in the title role and Rachel Nicholls as Elettra were immense”  Argus

“Conductor Nicholas Jenkins tirelessly sustained both dramatic momentum and rhythmic buoyancy and the 40 strong chorus rose to its big moments impressively.”
“As Idamante, Flora McIntosh was a Mozartean model of expressive and musical integrity.” Opera
