“a brilliant work – one that deserves national and international recognition” CLASSIC MELBOURNE
“A highly entertaining evening with a social message” THE AGE ★★★★½
“Facilitated by director Sarah Giles’ thought-provoking staging, the results are as pertinent as they are devastatingly entertaining. Such is its strength that one might get the sense women never before have commanded so candid a platform - one of 75 coruscating minutes.” Herald Sun ★★★★ HERALD SUN
“From music and lyrics to set and costumes, it’s an engaging package whose appeal goes well beyond the usual opera crowd.” ★★★★ LIMELIGHT
“An absolute treat for the eyes and ears, Lorelei is sophisticated adult entertainment of the highest order.” SIMON PARRIS, MAN IN CHAIR
“Would I watch Lorelei again? Definitely. Would I recommend this to everyone? Yes.” CUT COMMON
