A climactic Push!

Posted on Thursday, September 17, 2009



In this month's Spectator magazine, Michael Tanner's subject is the new 'Grimeborn' festival in Dalston, Cumbria. But he starts by reminiscing over a decade of similar chamber opera ventures, and Tête à Tête's role at the forefront of that movement. Tanner then writes

Tête à Tête itself... has had a largely successful decade, the climax being, for me, the full-length opera Push!, the chronicle of a day in the life of a maternity ward, set to often brilliantly apposite music, and performed with vocal and histrionic virtuosity.


It's a pleasant surprise to get a good review when the topic of the review in question isn't even your piece. It makes you feel like they must really mean it!
