De Engelse pers laaiend over Benvenuto Cellini

‘I don’t do opera, I put on a show’ – Terry Gilliam

Benvenuto Cellini  is een coproductie met English National Opera, Londen en Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. Juni 2014 was deze spectaculaire opera te zien in Londen. De Engelse pers was zo lyrisch, dat we gerust kunnen stellen dat Benvenuto Cellini een must-see is! Deze absurdistische productie is binnenkort ook te zien in Nederland. Lees hieronder wat de Engelse pers van de voorstelling vond.
