★★★★☆  effective:

Anthropocene

Anthropocene

★★★☆☆ Icy:

Anthropocene, from Scottish Opera at the King’s, is a work that is constantly shifting its ground both dramatically and musically; while it is absorbing it never entirely solidifies.

Don Giovanni

Don Giovanni

★★★☆☆ Well-performed but jumbled:
VoiceArc’s sci-fi reworking of Don Giovanni, at Broughton St Mary’s Church to Sunday, lifts itself on the voices of its talented performers despite some questionable set design.
