La Cenerentola

Opera Holland Park

Nominated for the Reumert Prize for Opera, Denmark.

From the start Oliver Platt’s staging hits the right note. Opera Holland Park should be proud of this dazzling Cenerentola, which captures Rossini’s generous spirit.

High camp, modern irony and huge fun…
4/5 Stars Flora Wilson The Guardian

Oliver Platt’s staging of Rossini’s comedy based on the Cinderella story represents Opera Holland Park’s first ever co-production, with the Danish National Opera – and what a fine show this is from a visual point of view…The comedy has been finely and purposefully rehearsed…It’s something of a triumph.
4/5 Stars George Hall The Stage

A really good production has to unlock the charm of the opera and director Oliver Platt did just that with a warm, feel-good production … Anyone seeking comic uplift must look no further than Holland Park this month.
4/5 Stars Dominic Lowe Bachtrack

Oliver Platt’s sparkling new production surely seduces with its suave stagecraft and deft, but never hyperbolic, wit…director, designers and musical dirigent are all singing from the same hymn sheet, and the cumulative effect is magnificent.
Claire Seymour Opera Today

As for Oliver Platt’s unfussy direction, it has moments of inspiration and plenty of wit.
