The Turk in Italy skips and sparkles from the gruffest of bass notes to the impossibly high reaches of Stacey Alleaume's coloratura.

Andrea Molino leads a cracking team of comic talents, including Paolo Bordogna in his side-splitting performance as the Turk. Simon Phillips’ playful production wrings every last laugh from Rossini’s ridiculous romp.

Gabriela Tylesova’s gelato-coloured costumes and clever, cartoonish sets are stars in their own right: a candied cherry on top of this rather outrageous ice-cream sundae.

“It’s just about as much fun as you can have in an opera house,” said Phillips, and the critics agreed.
