"The lasting impression is of a strong collective plea for a troubling and troubled work" ★★★★  Anna Picard, The Times (£)

"This is a convincing account with some excellent performances from a group of very talented singers, and confirms Owen Wingrave as a work that has been underestimated." ★★★★  David Truelove, Classical Source

"While Owen Wingrave makes for a gloomy evening, some outstanding singing and spirited playing...gladden the heart. Another plus is the Southend Boys Choir, kept busy with supernumerary business and adding its ghostly offstage calls to haunting effect."  Mark Valencia, What'sOnStage

"A strong cast and stylish production go some way towards rehabilitating this troubled piece."  Alexandra Coghlan, The Arts Desk
