Ariadne auf Naxos - Opera Holland Park
As the music declares, this Zerbinetta moves from truth to pretty artifice, and the costume change reflects that. The “Harlequinade” has genuinely funny gags, no doubt encouraged by that most original of choreographers Lucy Burge.
— ★★★★★The Arts Desk
Gloriana - The Royal Opera House
The pleasure of the piece lies in the music’s unexpected flashes of beauty, in its ironical forshadowings of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and above all in the community masque which Lucy Burge’s choreography and Ultz’s visual wit make both comic and touching.
— The Independent
The Tales of Hoffman - English National Opera
Not only does Olympia’s coloratura yelp with careless ease, but the theatrical sleight-of-hand that breathes life into the puppet is hugely entertaining and hilariously choreographed by Lucy Burge.
