Reviews: Tamerlano

Cambridge Handel Opera Company’s production of Tamerlano has been met with excellent reviews, including 4.5 stars from Robert Hugill at Planet Hugill:

As Asteria, Caroline Taylor began demure and butter-wouldn’t-melt, helped by her stylish yet very conventional frock. But Taylor also found another vein; this Asteria had spitfire moments and was clearly her father’s daughter. Taylor brought highly expressive facial expressions and body language to the Throne Room Scene, making Asteria a very active participant even when saying little, and at the end of the scene Taylor was profoundly moving when Asteria addresses Bajazet, Andronico and Irene in turn, then ends the act with her powerful aria.
