☆☆☆☆ "I canít think of a production of Orpheus in the Underworld that I have ever enjoyed as much as this rumbustious, unpretentious, and jolly version, executed with tremendous verve."
RUPERT CHRISTIANSEN The Daily Telegraph

☆☆☆☆ "This is a piece that needs a nicely outrageous take and in Jeff Clarkeís new production it gets it. Contemporary, clever, cheeky."
RIAN EVANS The Guardian
