From customers:

Oliver M, 10 years ago

......was partnered by a delicious Nancy in Rose Nolan, who sang with rich-toned relish, acted with poise and sensitivity, and looked exquisite."

Lily M

Indeed, the singing at times is breathtakingly wonderful. Rose Nolan plays Hansel and her voice is rich and silky with mellifluous tones."
