One year on from his superb debut as Mid Wales Opera’s Artistic Director, Nicholas Cleobury remains on blistering form, conducting a fine cast of young singers and MWO’s fabulous orchestra in Stephen Barlow’s new production of Madam Butterfly. Now mid-tour, the run has been garnering tremendous critical acclaim from opening night onwards:
“It is thanks to Artistic Director and conductor Nicholas Cleobury driving the score forward with a real feel for its detail that Puccini’s characterisations begin to shine through. ”
Rian Evans, The Guardian
“MWO’s musical director, Nicholas Cleobury, led a tight, beautifully paced account of the pared-down score. ”
Hugo Shirley, The Telegraph
“Conductor Nicholas Cleobury created a sensitive balance.”
