Charles H Parsons
American Record Guide, September 2016

Rock star Roger Daltrey does not have the operatic voice of his colleagues but manages well, crooning his way through the music. The others excel as singers and actors, …With Gardiner at the helm, a musically authentic performance is assured. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Manuel Ribeiro
Pizzicato, July 2016

In this live recording from 1983, the staging prevails over the singing, even though part of the cast is vocally very good. We note also a very good performance from the English Baroque Soloists conducted by John Eliot Gardiner. © 2016 Pizzicato

Nicholas Sheffo
Fulvue Drive-in, July 2016

This was an ambitious project and at 135 minutes, does a decent job of its humorous bit to entertain and show an earlier time. © 2016 Fulvue Drive-in Read complete review

Kevin Filipski
The Flip Side, May 2016

…Roger Daltrey plays MacHeath…in fine voice, …John Eliot Gardiner leads the English Baroque Soloists in a robust reading of the score, …Hi-def audio and video are decent. © 2016 The Flip Side Read complete review
