Time Out Sydney

Four stars
'A most elegant and powerful show, with a fine and passionate performance at its heart'

Four stars
'The choice of O'Sullivan to tell this most anguished and timeless of tragic stories, both in song and in speech, is an inspired one... Equally confident in expressive narration as in singing, she captivates increasingly as she takes us ever deeper into Shakespeare's dark and terrible tale.'

'A perfectly-structured production of rare intelligence'
