"Alessandro Corbelli delivers a masterclass in how to extract every ounce of humour from comedy by playing it straight. He is the king of comedy and an international treasure." The Stage
"Annabel Arden's dark staging of Rachmaninov's opera and her brilliantly funny view of Puccini's comedy make for a perfect Glyndebourne evening. Sergei Leiferkus and Alessandro Corbelli are memorable in the respective title parts and Vladimir Jurowski is the superb conductor." Sunday Times
