Tosca - Opera North - 1988"This is the best production of TOSCA since the Zeffirelli production was new at Covent Garden over a quarter of a century ago." - The Times

 

"Realism, dramatic credibility and believable characters is what Ian judge’s new production of TOSCA is all about. He succeeds by a directness of purpose that rids it of the veneer of tired, traditional stock gestures." - Yorkshire Post

 

"Ian Judge’s production goes some way towards recognizing that its improbable plot and deliberate pace are best treated as dramatic geometry; and since Judge is a master of dramatic detail, the result is often very effective indeed." - The Independent
