★★★★  "Cleverly designed, this is a good-looking Marriage of Figaro, with a handsome white set by Simon Kenny, suggesting a touch of Moorish influence in its Spanish architectural flavour" The Stage

★★★★  ”The eighteenth-century Spanish setting, attractively designed by Simon Kenny as a frame of Moorish tracery arches” The Telegraph

★★★★  "A ravishing new production...a simple white set, with graceful scalloped arches, put the opera firmly in its Spanish setting, with the actors contrasting sharply against the cool background in dazzling coloured costumes" Bachtrack

★★★★  The Observer
