Recent reviews

[The] daughters, Zoe Drummond’s Clorinda and Sioned Gwen Davies as Tisbe, were superb as bickering siblings; to the manor born as chavvy teenagers whose attempts to win the hand of Ramiro made for some truly cringe-making moments – a compelling coupling.”
2019 | Opera Today | Rossini’s La Cenerentola at West Green House

This is a production that unequivocally puts the fairies in charge, led by Collin Shay as Oberon. He is strongly paired by Zoe Drummond, also in the punk-goth groove, and blessed with a powerful, dramatic soprano and an equally commanding stage presence. In this most magical of operas, they are both spellbinding.”
