They have done it again! I went to the opening night on Tuesday and it is another masterful production. I know Mozart was only 24 years old when he wrote this but even so musically there are moments that I could live without but that’s made up for by the great musical moments – especially involving the chorus, with some accompanying moves that David Byrne would be proud of.
After the kerfuffle with Arts Council England at the beginning of the year it was a celebration just to see this taking place at all and once again anyone who works in the arts of any sort can’t help but come away from this inspired by the sheer imagination and quality of delivery shown by the Birmingham Opera team.
It’s running until the end of next week – dates are here
