La Canterina

"Lysanne van Overbeek delivers Haydn's deft little comedy with a light touch."
☆☆☆☆ The Stage

"Fifty minutes of melodic mayhem later, the Buxton International Festival audience has been well entertained by a performance as slick in its comic timing as one could wish."
The Opera Critic

"This is a glorious one act romp of an opera."
National World

"Lysanne van Overbeek’s direction is straightforward and keeps the comedy at just the right level."

The Arts Desk

"This typically eighteenth century farce was wittily performed under the direction of Lysanne van Overbeek, and beautifully sung under the direction of Toby Hession."
