1. Bill Jones8 Jun 2013, 8:36pm5 stars The Barber Institute Of Fine Arts Report

I went to the saturday afternoon performance of this opera and was stunned by almost every aspect of it. As a seasoned opera goer I was expecting a good performance as all the lunch time concerts at the Barber Institute I have seen have been of the finest quality but this exceeded all my expectations. It is a rarely perfomed Gluck opera which is a pity because this, judging by the ecstatic reception given by the audience, seemed to delight everyone there.

The singing of the principal characters and the chorus were wonderful, the drama thrilling and the dancing an absolute delight. A special mention for Lauren Joyanne Morris's Clytemnestra and Matthew Durkan's Agamemnon but everyone was on top form. The orchestra was superb
