“Soprano Claudia Boyle is especially successful in this respect, singing her angular part with confidence and conviction… success of this performance is that it embraces this operatic style with orchestra and singers being encouraged by the skilled direction of Martyn Brabbins to sing and play with impressive flair and explicit drama… Claudia Huckle sings the contralto role of Cleopatra with total conviction and impressive engagement… this disc shows throughout what a fine ensemble [orchestra of ENO] are… Brabbins continues his excellent work as one of the leading conductors of Brian.” MusicWeb International
