The Spectator “an unmitigated triumph”

★★★★ The Herald “With only a slither of the apron of the platform and four chairs with which to work, the fifteen singers omitted none of the drama of the action, and the proximity of words and music-making often produced moments of startling clarity. In suggesting that Salome’s dance of the seven veils was happening off-stage as a private experience for Herod, director PJ Harris paralleled it with the opening scene’s reportage of the king’s step-daughter and the incarcerated prophet Jokannan as rivals for the attention of the court.”
