'The cast performs splendidly, Ronald Corp leads them and the excellent New London Orchestra and Light Opera Chorus stylishly and appropriately' (International Record Review)

'Janis Kelly and Christopher Maltman sing the romantic leads with the right clear-eyed sentiment, and Richard Suart and Sally Burgess provide expert comic relief. The whole affair is piloted with style and affection by Ronald Corp, Hyperion's light music guru. Wicked!' (BBC Music Magazine)
