What the audience said
Wonderful! The cast a joy to watch as well as a joy to listen to. Good costumes, good lighting, good sets as well as good singing!
Excellently undertaken – attention to detail most enjoyable. We very much enjoyed the evening. Thank you very much. Everything very nicely done in a beautiful setting.
Even better than usual high standard!
It was such fun - wonderfully sung, never mind the directing/acting and the beautifully sounding London Mozart Players. The libretto was very witty and the diction of the singers ensured none of it was lost for the audience to hear. It is now a fixed date in my diary and my friends are delighted to have found such an entertaining and enjoyable opera company.
As ever, every word was audible, and your witty translation came over really well - such a delight. I loved especially the "dashing white sergeant" and "nothing like a dame" references, and was chuckling away at these and others.
[We] were bowled over by both the opera itself and the performance last Friday. Portugal is an amazing find and it was an immense task, significantly fulfilled, to bring an unknown work three hours long triumphantly to the stage. Congratulations to all concerned. The music was tuneful, rhythmic and what occurred on stage held the attention throughout. The production and staging couldn’t have been bettered.
Absolutely terrific show. Enormous congratulations. It was 'the epitome' of a Bampton show and hence of opera in a garden. Wonderful entertainment and standards all round.
