"Hampstead Garden Opera's Figaro is a cracker ****" (David Winskill)

Review: Ham&High, London (27th July 2021) -

"Hampstead Garden Opera at St Michael's Highgate" (David Winskill)

Just before the interval Rusnė Tušlaitė (the last-minute stand-in soprano from Lithuania) and counter-tenor Francis Gush delivered the gloriously tender and joyous While I look at you, I desire you from Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea. One of the most beautiful pieces in all opera, their superbly matched voices suited St Michael’s spectacular acoustic.
