Die Zauberflöte - Garsington Opera
Jones’ beautiful set brings the Garsington garden into the Pavilion. The mathematical symmetries of topiary, sun-dial, and triangular folly-frames recall Peter Greenaway’s The Draughtsman’s Contract with its exaggerated artificiality, numerical and iconographic games, excessive wigs, costume colour-coding and obsession with optical devices.
— Opera Today
Dark Mirror - The Barbican
elegant, inventive, a haunting take on alienation...
— ★★★★★ Financial Times
Curlew River - The Barbican
But the Britten Sinfonia – blessings on its name – has got it triumphantly right, with a magnificent cast of musicians and a production by Netia Jones of eloquent simplicity that never allows the densely ritualised action to slip into bathos or unintentional comedy.
— ★★★★★ The Telegraph
