"a powerful act of remembrance"

The Independent

"A gripping and moving world premiere"

"poetic tribute finds humanity in the trenches"

The Guardian

The World Premiere of Iain Bells’ adaptation of In Parenthesis was performed by Welsh National Opera at Wales Millennium Centre on Friday 13 May. Here’s what the national and local press had to say:

“It is Iain Bell’s writing for chorus that stands out. The male chorus of soldiers sing marches, songs of battle and triumph.” Bachtrack

“An enthralling, psychologically intriguing, evocative work of music theatre.” – Wales Online

Read the full 5 star review from the Independent and Ruper Christiansen’s piece in The Telegraph.
