“Katie Bird is magnificent as Cio-Cio-San as her soprano reveals immense shape and control to produce lines that are as striking as they are precise. Robyn Lyn Evans reveals a brilliantly expansive tenor as Pinkerton, Robert Davies, with his splendid baritone, provides an immensely sensitive portrayal of Sharpless”
