“Irresistible visceral power” Andrea Chénier opens to rave reviews

Andrea Chénier, directed by Annabel Arden with set and costumes designed by Joanna Parker, has opened to glowing reviews, being described as “a thrilling evening that richly deserved its enthusiastic reception” by The Telegraph. Giving the production 5 stars, they note that “Andrea Chénier exerts irresistible visceral power” and that “Arden focuses on the violence and paranoia of Robespierre’s Paris, drawing from the chorus and soloists strongly etched portraits of both its victims and persecutors.”

In another equally positive review, The Guardian admires Joanna Parker’s “dazzling costumes” nothing that they “suggest Jean-Paul Marat by way of Jean Paul Gaultier”.

Andrea Chénier plays at the Leeds Grand Theatre until February 24th, when it will tour the North of England, visiting Newcastle, Nottingham and Manchester.
