ADOLYGIADAU

“Music Theatre Wales’s staging, directed by Michael McCarthy tries nothing fancy and lets the power of Maxwell Davies’s concept speak for itself. Kelvin Thomas’s authoritative embodiment of the night-shirted King is both pathetic and disturbing, complemented by superb playing from MTW’s band, conducted by Michael Rafferty.”

The Telegraph on Eight Songs for a Mad King

“Kelvin Thomas’s performance is one of the most compelling I’ve seen. A lumbering, shambling mountain of a king, in wig and nightdress, Thomas’s portrayal of the deranged George III moves from horror to pity with a hundred nuances of human affliction in between. And his vocal virtuosity is so closely integrated with the voices of the instrumental ensemble, conducted by Michael Rafferty, that they seem a single nerve system — sentient, shattered, always in shock.”
