Our Autumn tour of Handel's Amadigi is finally underway, and the production has been warmly received by the public and the press alike.

"quantities of emotional, incisive singing... It's so good to have English Touring Opera back"
The Times

"Conway tackles the requisite onstage wizardry with inventive glee... the performances here are strong. [Francesca] Chiejina is exceptional, whether attempting seduction, conjuring up Furies or giving voice to
lonely despair."
The Guardian

"Magical show casts an enjoyable spell…a sharp modern take on age-old themes"
Evening Standard

"sizzles with energy, fizzes with musical delight and rejoices in an understated sense of fun."

“With all the ingredients for a fine performance: excellent cast, great music, love tangled plot and a wonderful set, Amadigi delighted the audience… The quartet of singers captivate”
Yorkshire Times

“[James Conway's] production’s sleights of design serve as telling metaphors for the protagonists’ inner confusions and illusions... this English Touring Opera production enchants.”
