Rhiannon: 'I'm still trying to process it all and I'm a bit overwhelmed but it was amazing. I feel like I need to come and see it again. I loved the music, especially the glass harmonica. Katie Mitchell's direction is so unique.'
Andrew: 'The little details were very powerfu, like the slow motion, l but I don't know what the people were doing upstairs. I liked the modern references in the libretto and how this was reflected in the staging.'
Justyna and Emmet: 'It's the first opera that Emmet has been to and we bought the £3 tickets in the Amphi which for the price were great. It was very powerful and he'd definitely come to come back, but perhaps to see something more traditional. We really liked the music and vocally was very strong.'
Tony: 'It's a lovely production and visually is very interesting. Given it's an unfamiliar story it felt understandable and the singers' incredible diction meant that you didn't need surtitles. Just super!'
