CITY RECITAL HALL, SYDNEY
“Lighting by Matthew Marshall was at times lyrical and delicate and at others storm tossed.”
Lynne Lancaster, ArtsHub
“The idea of fully staged opera in a concert hall is somewhat ludicrous, but Pinchgut’s direction teams have built a tradition of clever tricks with lights and sets. Alicia Clements has produced an impressive evocation of Armida’s burnt-out castle over several levels. Combined with Matthew Marshall’s adroit lighting, this gives a startling range of spatial possibilities to the tall yet shallow stage.
