Below is feedback received after our most recent performance of the Hive at Hoxton Hall on July 7th 2022.
Dear Hive team
I just wanted to thank you all so much for the privilege of working with you all on such a interesting, moving and fun project. It was such a huge challenge in the short period of time we had to actually stage this but I, and I know the rest of the cast as well, were all so appreciative of the work that had gone in to this show – in some cases over many years! I very much hope that the project continues to grow — it’s a fabulous score and script and a story that absolutely needs to be told. It was a difficult role (well, roles!) for me but I loved it.
I had several friends come to the show who had never been to an opera before and who were completely gripped – and one who goes to many, and was also impressed, so I think that’s a win!
Thank you again so much for your help, guidance, and immense artistic vision on this project – and for allowing me to be part of it!
All best wishes
A superb production featuring very fine soloists and orchestra. The book itself, and the use of the back-lit screen, were also impressive. This show deserves to be seen by more people and I would hope it might provoke discussion about the topics it raises. A great night.
I thought I would just let you know how much I really, really loved The Hive. It was a really brilliant production, full of verve, energy and enthusiasm. The music was absolutely thrilling, the libretto sharp and clever and the sheer exuberance of everyone just burst off the stage to the enthralled audience. What an amazing subject, explored with sensitivity with a blast of well placed cynicism. Thoroughly brave, thought provoking and a real experience.
Absolutely loved it!
The Hive was an incredible achievement. Really I was blown away. The chorus, the singers, the musicians … all of it was so impressive. Magic!
Congratulations on a spectacular show! Everyone in the audience agreed that you and your cast were phenomenal tonight and I’m so glad I got to experience it
We loved the Opera. We thought the writing was clever and the way the stories of well-known characters were woven into the story between the conference scenes and the courtroom scenes was really clever. The singers and musicians were incredible too – so enjoyable!
My first visit to this superb little venue….. a superb production featuring very fine soloists and orchestra. The book itself, and the use of the back-lit screen, were also impressive. This show deserves to be seen by more people and I would hope it might provoke discussion about the topics it raises. A great night.
