‘Alessandro Corbelli delivers a masterclass in how to extract every ounce of humour from comedy by playing it straight. He is the king of comedy and an international treasure.’ -- The Stage

‘…conducted with flamboyant verve and mercurial comic energy by Jurowski, this is close to the perfect Glyndebourne experience’ --Sunday Times Magazine

‘...a mouth-watering double bill of one-act operas by Rachmaninov and Puccini. The London Philharmonic was in scintillating form in both pieces.’ --
