From Northants Touring Arts, 20th December 2014

Desborough United Reform Church:

"Wow.. we just saw your performance of The Snow Queen in Desborough. What a fantastic show! Me and my kids were captivated from the opening scene. We loved everything about it - story, songs, set, props, choreography... Thank you for coming to our little town and have a happy xmas!"

(From Claire Tromans)


From The Lantern Theatre, 2nd - 4th January 2015:

"Snow Queen at the Lantern yesterday was the highlight of my extensive theatre going over the Festive Season which included some much larger venues and productions - indeed a highlight of the year. So inventive and yet so true to the story. A brilliant adaptation, so imaginatively staged and beautifully performed. I'd usually take 'stunning original music' with a pinch of salt, but it's totally justified - immediately attractive but always fresh... And how many shows do you see where every word of every song is crystal clear? What said it all was that even the tiniest children in the audience were mesmerised and quiet throughout..."

(From Donald Judge)


From Barnton Memorial Hall, 10th January 2015:

"Thank you for a brilliant evening at The Snow Queen. It was amazing, magical and enthralling."

(From Barbara Burston)


" The Snow Queen by Relative Pitch Opera. The music is original and emotive. The singing is unusual - you can hear every word. The acting is captivating, punctuated with skillful movement and dance. The whole is a lovely piece of Theatre - a testament to the professionalism of the Players, the Writers, and the Director and Technical Team."

(From Barrie Billinge)
