Seen and Heard International
Raymond J. Walker August 16, 2014
"a seven strong troupe who need to be congratulated for having provided one of the most original and zany production of Ruddigore since Halas & Batchelor produced their 1964 cartoon."
"Once in a while we come across a theatre presentation out of the ordinary and only a Festival is able to expose it. Full marks then for the Harrogate G&S Festival for having provided the facility to stage this extraordinary event."
"The performance was slick, the interpretation fresh and the amusing situations were visually clever."
"theatre art at its best"
"Seeing another Ruddigore will never be the same again."
"All performers are excellent singers; David Macaluso a velvety rich baritone, Matthew Wages a resonant bass, and Jessica Wagner entrancing with her ‘If somebody there chanced to be’."
"The quality of singing with Vince Carr’s vivacious accompaniment, made this a show to remember. The part singing of the madrigal was particularly well balanced, and Mad Margaret’s eccentric acting brought extra touches of comedy."
