What People are Saying

 

“astonishing”

 

…and the ecstatic operetta duet “One More Kiss” by the great classical soprano, Josephine Barstow, making her NT debut at 78, and the astonishing Alison Langer.

The Independent

“A bright future”

 

Alison Langer, as Norina, clearly has a bright future.

The Guardian

 

“Star presence”

 

In a scene filled with gaiety and youthful hedonism, Langer has star presence as Musetta

The Arbrutrarian

 

“fine lyric soprano”

 

Alison Langer (Norina) had a fine lyric soprano voice with a great way with the Donizetti vocal line
