Maurice Millward

March 2014

“Tim Albery’s dark and intense ENO production from 1994, finely sung and acted with Philip Langridge's deeply moving Grimes rightly dominating the drama in an interpretation that hinges on textual sensitivity and poetic insight. Alan Opie contributes a stalwart Balstrode and Susan Gorton a properly terrifying Mrs Sedley.”

BBC Music Magazine

October 2007

“Tim Albery's ENO production… conducted with drive by David Atherton, gets to the heart of the opera. I challenge anyone not to be moved by it.”

Penguin Guide



“Tim Albery's darkly intense production...makes a powerful impression on DVD...As for the principals, their singing, vivid and characterful from first to last, can hardly be faulted, with Philip Langridge even more moving as Grimes than on CD, thanks to his deeply involving acting”
