about

Ace New Zealand-born opera conductor Warwick Braithwaite, music director of both the Australian Opera and the Welsh National Opera Companies, here breathes new life into Puccini's masterpiece. He leads a crack team of principals: Fretwell and Smith, both from Australia, are sublime, and Herincx is the epitome of evil – the Wild West comes to Islington!
