Carmen - Nevill Holt
Ashley Page’s intelligent production flair brought elegance, some wonderful costuming, versatile sets and much more... Thanks to Page’s direction and instilled discipline, the group scenes were splendidly marshalled, from first to last.

Orfeo ed Eurydice - Scottish Opera
What Page achieved in this notoriously difficult-to-stage work was the concise expressiveness that eludes so many of its interpreters. And he did so in harmony with an ‘old pro’ in the pit, Kenneth Montgomery, and a trio of soloists who acted as eloquently as they sang.
