Quotes & Highlights

“An absolute spellbinder . . .an enchanting dream, and like most vivid reveries, it momentarily colors the way you see the waking world.” —London Daily Telegraph
“Charm is a much-abused word but Aurélia’s Oratorio has it in spades… an upsidedown, topsy-turvy world that Aurélia opens up, a world where the magic is all in the detail.” —Metro London
“A show of wit and beauty, with haunting stage images.”  —Variety
