The Mastersingers of Nuremburg (English National Opera)

*****

Who said ENO is finished? Here is an enthralling, unmissable two-fingers-in-the-air to the company's critics.

Financial Times

There is no better parable of what art means to society, and in this stringently perceptive yet hugely entertaining staging, wittily designed by Paul Steinberg and Buki Shiff to evoke a picture-book image of old Nuremburg, the director Richard Jones makes its meanings richly clear without desiccating them.
Telegraph

 

 

Gloriana (Royal Opera House)

The pleasure of the piece lies in the music's unexpected flashes of beauty, in its ironical forshadowings of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and above all in the community masque which Lucy Burge's choreography and Ultz's visual wit make both comic and touching .

The Independent

The Tales of Hoffman (ENO)

Not only does Olympia's coloratura yelp with careless ease, but the theatrical sleight-of-hand that breathes life into the puppet is hugely entertaining and hilariously choreographed by Lucy Burge.
The Classical Source

Rusalka (Grange Park Opera)

...dream-like, violent, mournful, amoral, funny, immaculately lit and choreographed, and very disturbing.
