Top of the HOSH: a hit list of operas
We said: "It’s an opera with big emotional impact, but is mostly played out in intimate scenes. Director Andy Morton... has made a valiant effort."
We said: "It’s understandable that Opera Australia would want to remount this Carmen – it’s irrepressibly modern and eminently watchable."
We said: "There’s nothing wrong with having a winning formula – but this production often feels more like a congruence of ingredients than a fully satisfying dish."
We said: "A full frontal assault on the senses: the sea breeze; the skyline, the stars, a crescent moon; the glittering, kaleidoscope spectacle."
We said: "The perfect potion – the glitzy visuals and hyperactive energy of a Broadway musical mixed with world-class opera."
