Reviews


In this gift of a role Alistair Sutherland uses his expressive face to the full to give an hilarious turn and solid vocal performance - Jonathan Lennie: Time Out

...a real stand-out for his trusty compendium of comic gestures - combining a pinch each of Niles Crane and Mr Bean - and he can sing too. - Edward Bhesania: The Stage

Alistair Sutherland was exceptionally well cast as Marullo, impressing us with a nonchalant nastiness which was every inch the bored and bitter courtier. - Charlotte Valori: bachtrack.com

Pitch-perfect Alistair Sutherland gives Figaro a boyish innocence, finding gleeful delight in manipulating his master. Blink and you miss his brilliantly witty facial expressions. - Francesca Wickers fringeopera.com

Alistair Sutherland as the escaped political prisoner, Angelotti, provides another outstandingly fine voice and he is also a superb comedian - Theresa Roche: remotegoat.com

Baritone Alistair Sutherland as Colas is eye-wateringly funny - Francesca Wickers: fringeopera.com
