Orfeo ed Euridice / Zanetto
Gluck / Mascagni

"A terrific night of opera as real human drama, with plenty to think about as you picked your way out through a Dalston Lane police cordon and back to the Overground."
The Spectator

"Intriguing, beautifully sung, female-led operatic double bill performed with great skill and sympathy."

**** The Stage

"In accordance with their philosophy, Barefoot strips down both works to the basics of body, breath, movement and sound. In doing so they bring out unexpected correspondences between these two operas, written nearly 150 years apart."

**** The Reviews Hub

"You fight the urge to leap forward to intervene and set them on the road to happiness."

**** Broadway World
