Planet Hugill ★★★★★
Ella Marchment’s production helped by providing a richly imaginative but non-specific setting which allowed us to concentrate on Suibhne. Marchment and her designer, Holly Piggott, cleverly got over the problems of Suibhne’s ability to fly by making ladders a feature of the multi-level set, cleverly manipulated by the chorus. It is to Noah Mosley [composer and conductor] and Ella Marchment’s credit that the audience was held spellbound for 90 minutes and applauded enthusiastically afterwards.
– Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
An extremely innovative production
Bury Court Opera Audience Feedback ★★★★★
The direction was of a very high order. Ella Marchment clearly has an imagination the size of a planet, but the gravity to hold that in a sensible orbit.
