But the beating heart of this production was Natalie Christie Peluso, doing double duty as a wonderfully vengeful Ottavia and naïve Drusilla... Strongly realised, her Ottavia is at once vulnerable, spiteful and repulsive in her abjection and fury...

Peluso’s attractively dark, grainy instrument was appropriately lightened and more ringing when singing Drusilla, turning in not one but two star turns.”
