When a Man Knows - another review

There is a short review of When a Man Knows on the Opera Britannia web-site as part of a longer column here, it takes a rather different view to Classical Iconoclast. I was particularly curious about the comments on the dearth of climaxes.

'I must also add that there were some quite beautiful melodies, which were interrupted by the chorus who had these dreadful vocal lines that were delivered by terrible singers. There was also a complete dearth of climaxes, although when the music finally did reach one, courtesy of a dramatic turn by Zoe South (announcing her reason for kidnapping "The Man"), it was truly stunning, and as an audience member it literally smacked you in the face with its intensity. ' - Opera Britannia
