We had a totally captivating performance from Olivia Warburton. A real and rare treat to see a young artist of such accomplishment.
Teseo was taken by Olivia Warburton, who characterised the role skilfully. I was impressed by the way that she showed appreciation of the way the Handelian rhythms can lighten the voice and convey heroic optimism and brightness. Moreover, the busy runs caused no problem; equally, the simple lyricism of ‘Tengo in pugno l’idol mio’ was beguiling.
Olivia Warburton as the naughty boy was enchanting; mischievous, bored, vindictive, frightened, she packed every emotion into 37 frenzied minutes
