The chamber opera received rave reviews when it premièred in 2011:

“Atmospheric music, often lyrical and pleasantly marinated in tonality … succulently scored.” (The Times)

“Bedford’s score is impeccably crafted and it is sensitively played by the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.” (Daily Telegraph)

"A score of substance and ultimate quality combined with beautiful words with extraordinary creative and artistic direction from the creative team and magnificent staging from John Fulljames." (Paul Guest/Ceasefire magazine)
