Reviews
A score rich in melody and full of wit and impulsiveness.
Claire Seymour, Opera Today,06/03/2015
Romantic, surreal and gently risqué, its music is lyrical and seductive at some points, strong and vivid at others.
Charlotte Valori, BachTrack,04/03/2015
The Dancing Master could easily sparkle on stage.
Roderic Dunnett, Opera Magazine,01/01/2013
