Can this revival of Puccini’s trio of operas directed by Richard Jones at the Royal Opera House excite critics?
The Guardian: **** Tim Ashley wrote: ” An uneven revival – but the best of it is tremendous and Jaho is unmissable.”
The Independent: **** Michael Church found that: “This is a wonderfully rich operatic repast.”
The Telegraph: ***** Rupert Christiansen was full of praise for the production: ” The sum of it is an operatic feast to gorge on.”
MusicOMH.com: *** Keith McDonnell was less enthusiastic saying: “Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi are definitely worth catching, so it maybe best to enjoy an extra glass of bubbly at the bar and give Il tabarro a miss. Just a thought.”
WhatsOnStage: **** Mark Valencia commented: “ultimately it’s Gallo’s show, and he steals it.”
Opera Britannia UK: “Jones’ stagings – here in the hands of revival directors, though he himself is in the house, presumably buried in Boris Godunov – remain in good shape, and have their own inner logic and integrity.”
Overall Verdict: critics are more impressed with Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi than Il tabarro.
