Dr Quimpugh's Compendium of Peculiar Afflictions - One4Review
Very interesting to see a professional opera on the Fringe and such a change from the usual musical fayre.
The three singers were excellent and played a multitude of roles. They coped very well with their parts although I did lose quite a few words – the diction is spot on but sometimes the over-articulations meant I had to lip-read a lot.
The three musicians were quite superb, annoyingly gorgeous and performed impeccably. The actual music I found quite random though and when there was a tune it seemed to go on just a bit too long – The Alien Hand for example.
But overall a very interesting show, an unusual subject matter and professionally produced.
