Reviews - Longborough Festival Opera - L’Elisir D’amore

1 Jul 2023

Opera Magazine - ’The brio and edge of Alice Farnham’s conducting infused the energetic young cast.'

The Artsdesk - ‘Good steering as well.  Alice Farnham conductors a lively, stylish orchestral performance, unobtrusive in the best bel canto sense but with some lovely touches, like the high bassoon in ‘Una furtiva lagrima’, one of Donizetti’s best finds.  She also works well with her very small chorus, staged as a set of village types, but perfectly integrated as a choir.'

Opera Today - 'From the pit, Alice Farnham drives the action forwards and takes the Longobrough Festival Orchestra through their paces.  They play vividly and classily.'

Opera Scene ’The composer is in excellent hands with the conducting of Alice Farnham.'
