AM DRAM

We were so looking forward to seeing this production of Madame Butterfly but as soon as the curtain went up and you saw the set and already we were alarmed. The set looked like a cheap B and Q foyer with a large hut central to the stage. The drama was essentially about how many times they could open and close the sliding doors. Very cheap production, terrible lighting, cheap costumes and terrible direction that there was laughter at times there shouldn’t have been. So disappointing, an exercise in how not to put on a production of such a well loved opera.

2.0 star rating Aloysious from London, England

NEVER REALLY GETS OUT OF 2ND GEAR AND DELIVERS

The whole production never really gets its act together and I found the leading singers very lacking. Normally I can't help but cry during this opera but alas tonight I left with dry eyes which was is really quite a damning indictment...
