"Sexual obsession, demon summoning, brawling, cannibalism - hardly a typical Glasgow Sunday afternoon. They were onstage all the same in Prokofiev's seldom-performed opera The Fiery Angel, part of Scottish Opera's Sunday Opera in Concert Series. That description doesn't do justice to this ambitious, almost-staging by director, Max Hoehn, without sets but with virtually everything else, and making full use of City Halls' aisles, balconies and choir seats." * * * * Telegraph
