Postcard from Wrocław

The hardest task facing foreign visitors to the fascinating Polish city of Wrocław is how to pronounce it.

CRITIQUES
Bayreuth

Musically sublime, packed with ideas

The label “most opera directors” does *not* apply to Barrie Kosky, who makes his Bayreuth debut with a Meistersinger that pulls no punches.
London

Lust, silk and strangulation: A Florentine Tragedy

Zemlinsky's dark story of infidelity and murder, from Oscar Wilde's unfinished play, poses a significant musical challenge for both audience and director. 
London

Prom 31: An intoxicating La Damnation de Faust

An unapologetic treat at the Proms and a composition of immediate appeal.
Edinburgh

Memorable and epic Die Walküre at EIF

A sensational Die Walküre from Sir Andrew Davis and the RSNO at the Edinburgh Festival that will be talked about for years.
Salzburg

Skilfully constructed: Wozzeck at the Salzburg Festival

A skilfully constructed production, and one that plays with the our perspectives. Whether the images are flashbacks from a war-troubled Wozzeck or a Büchner-esque portent of the horrors to come is left for the audience to decide.
Drottningholm

A night of deceit and fun: Così at Drottningholm

The third opera of the Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy opens the opera festival in Drottningholm, the "Swedish Versailles", with a good cast beautifully conducted by Marc Minkowski.
