The Sorcerer

The Sorcerer

★★★★☆   What larks:
For careful execution and straightforward fun, it is difficult to imagine many recent productions of Gilbert and Sullivan have beaten Cat-Like Tread’s The Sorcerer at Paradise in Augustines.

Ruddygore

Ruddygore

★★★☆☆ Precise:
Musically rigorous and staged with clarity, there is a definition to EDGAS’s Ruddygore than compensates for a certain lack of sparkle.

The Tales of Hoffmann

The Tales of Hoffmann

★★★☆☆ Enjoyable fantasy:
Lively and hugely likeable, Opera Camerata’s production of The Tales of Hoffmann is a largely pacy and accomplished affair.

The Pirates of Penzance

The Pirates of Penzance

✭✭✭✭✩ Plenty of pizzazz:
Fun, games and top-notch singing abound in The Pirates of Penzance at the King’s. The Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s production is reassuringly traditional, very strong musically, and extremely funny.

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 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.
