Berlioz frequently turned to Shakespeare for inspiration, and in Béatrice et Bénédict produced a delightful and sensuous score based on Much Ado About Nothing. The brilliant young cast excel in some of Berlioz’s most beautifully crafted and elegant music under the inspirational guidance of Sir Colin Davis.
‘A limpid and exhilarating delight. Enkelejda Shkosa and Kenneth Tarver in the title roles are excellent, Susan Gritton’s Hero outstanding. Davis touches everything with quicksilver.’
