"And there is one cliché that is immediately exploded, that traditionally opera singers can’t and won’t act- they certainly can and do here and there are some star turns... Sebastian Charlesworth and Warren Albers pair up wonderfully as Cox and Box..." Verity Healey www.theatrebubble.com (2015)

"For me there were several highlights...a chance to hear W Denis Browne’s To Gratiana Dancing and Singing stunningly sung by Sebastian Charlesworth." Mark Henegar, British Music Society (2015)
