Helios would like to thank…alphabetically…
I cannot express enough my appreciation of that performance. It had me smiling all the way through by the magic of it and moved to tears by the performance throughout; how is that possible? Magic.

The production was like a mini film, with superb acting (Angus McPhee was fantastic as Smirnov) and heaps of energy. The stage direction was resourceful – the backdrop for all three operas was made up of wooden cupboards and wardrobes that characters passed through, adding to the evening’s sense of surreal.
