The Queen of Spades

“Gripping music theatre. NSO deserves admiration and support.”

Arts Review

“As in Boris and Grimes of previous years this was the community’s production and it is to the orchestra, the adult and children’s choruses, all rigorously and intensively trained, that the highest praise must go.”

Hilary Finch, The Times
