'The producer Daniel Slater, experienced in the theatre but less so in music, has scored a bullís-eye with his first major production ... It all adds up to a little masterpiece of ensemble acting and direction ... The show zips along, joyfully, liberatingly. Pure heaven.'
'Here is Opera North scoring a big hit and making it all look so easy.'
'Daniel Slaterís new production will be hard to beat.'
'Daniel Slaterís entirely-to-the-point production makes for one of the most enjoyable new shows Iíve seen for a long time.'
'Daniel Slaterís lively and inventive new production ... If you want to introduce someone to the delights of opera, this is the one to take them to.'
'Here is a production with plenty to say and something for everyone. It will surely return again and again.'
'Glyndebourneís effort certainly ranks higher than the horribly false show put on by the Royal Opera, but the bet taken out last autumn that Opera Northís witty and humane production would sweep the board was a stake well placed.'
'Daniel Slaterís groundbreaking production ... In fact, itís one of the most vivaciously animated productions in years.'
'When it was staged five years ago this production, by Daniel Slater, was my favourite among the deluges of Brides with which we were then inundated ... by far the most convincing argument for opera in English that I have encountered for a very long time.'
