The Count of Luxembourg

The Count of Luxembourg

★★★★☆ Hopelessly romantic:

A smidgeon of modernity, and Edinburgh modernity at that, is added to Elspeth Williamson’s clever production of Franz Lehar’s The Count of Luxembourg for Opera Camerata.

Prophecy

Prophecy

★★☆☆☆ Future potential
Raw around the edges and somewhat uneven in its storytelling, new musical Prophecy which has its world premiere run at St Brides all this week, nevertheless succeeds in bringing its hero, the Brahan Seer, to life.

Princess Ida – Review

Princess Ida – Review

★★★★☆ Grace and frivolity:

Uplifting grace and outmoded comedy combine in equal measures for the Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s new production of Princess Ida which plays at the King’s all week.

Review – The Sorcerer

Review – The Sorcerer

★★★☆☆ Slight of hand:

Fun and frothy, there is little to deconstruct in Edinburgh G&S Society’s entertaining and distinctly slight production of The Sorcerer, which is at the Church Hill theatre to Saturday.

Review – The Yeomen of the Guard

Review – The Yeomen of the Guard

★★★☆☆ Needs more polish:

Soaring joy, daft patter and crushing melancholy are underpinned by a score tuned right into the events unfurling on stage in this occasionally brilliant Yeomen of the Guard.
