Of Course There's A Point To Small-Room Opera! (Says A Pub-Opera Company Director) Robin Norton-Hale of OperaUpClose: "Theatre critics don't tie themselves in knots trying to find a way to compare a production at the (rightly) well-funded RSC or National Theatre to one at ... the Edinburgh Fringe. Each performance is judged on its own merits. ... Far from being a poorer experience, I would argue that seeing a smaller-scale opera is simply a different one."
