‘ La Finta Giardiniera by Mozart, at the Buxton festivalHarry Fehr’s Buxton staging, vividly designed by Yannis Thavoris and authoritatively conducted by Nicholas Kraemer, makes a surprisingly strong case for this disregarded piece.’ ***** The Guardian [full review]

in this dazzling, bold and inventive production we have a novel modern setting under Harry Fehr’s direction.’ ‘ Nicholas Kraemer’s conducting of the Northern Chamber Orchestra was wonderfully alert, bringing out the joyful nuances of Mozart’s youthful score, looking ahead to Così and Figaro.’ The Arts Desk [full review]. Performances run until July 21.
