Press Reviews - Cast and Creatives
‘[Sir Thomas Allen’s]…new show for Scottish Opera is one of the most entertaining and ingenious productions of Mozart’s final stage work I have seen.’
The Times **** (The Magic Flute, 2012)
'Simon Higlett's decor and costumes showed an artist's flair - the Queen of the Night's sparkling gown and the umbrella-shaped butterflies were especially impressive - and Mark Jonathan's lighting bewitched the eye. '

'Susan Gritton’s Anna was a massive voice to make the rafters ring, but she controlled it superbly and her two big arias were stunning, pulling off the extraordinary feat of making Mozart’s avenging angel utterly believable and even somewhat sympathetic.'
Scene and Heard (Don Giovanni, SCO concert, 2010)
‘Lisa Milne adorns the title role with a delicious sensuality and emotive passion.'
