The critical consensus

Sure, it’s wonderful to hear this music so effusively expressed, and laboured over with such intensity, but not to the extent that it dominates everything else.

There are fine performances across the piece.

Mark Brown, Scottish Stage, 19/05/2017

An enjoyable evening out.

For my purist friends the production was way over-the-top, the music, certainly from the front of the stalls, over powering and the opening few minutes with the youth listening and jogging to his iPhone out of kilter with what was to be the 1920s flea market.
