“The calibre of this production is astounding. The sets and lighting are stark yet powerful, except during a lavish and whacky masquerade scene that has to be seen to be believed.”

Jay Hanna, thewest.com.au 

“The play is served perfectly by its music and lighting production.”

Mason Rothwell, outinperth.com

“Bruce McKinven and Amalia Lambert’s design combines austere virtues with moments of inspiration, working with lighting designer Matthew Marshall. Some of the tableaux they create of Elizabeth in sumptuous silk robes and Susi Rigg’s millinery, caught in gold and silver light, are unspeakably gorgeous.”

David Zampatti, seesawmag.com.au
