Reviews

From customers:

Matthew S, 1 year ago

As for singing, in a concert featuring “Brexit-ignoring” fare of British and French song (a partnership between the RNCM and the Paris Conservatoire), the richest moments came when an amazing young British baritone, Edward Robinson, sang in French.

Raymond I, 4 years ago

The ensemble was magnificent, as was Grosvenor’s rendition of “A magnet hung in a hardware shop” where all words were clearly heard... Bunthorne and Grosvenor with well-timed lines were appropriately dressed and amusing in their long-haired wigs with flamboyant pink bow and mustard artist’s hat respectively. Their interaction was beautifully played throughout.
