The one shining star is in the pit, where the young British conductor Leo McFall kept the orchestra under firm control without sacrificing sensitivity or grace. The melancholy beauty of the opening prelude was the evening's highlight.

Leo McFall, another first timer with the company, conducts a lovingly shaped performance from the ENO orchestra, bringing out details in this score you don't often hear.

Erica JealThe Guardian

Leo McFall's lithe conducting of the excellent orchestra and chorus was the other beacon of light.
