Review in Opera Magazine

A review of Cape Town Opera's "Four:30 - Operas Made in South Africa" by Barry Smith has been published in Opera magazine's May 2016 edition. He has this to say about my opera "The Application":

"Robert Fokkens...produced a delightful setting of Laurence Allan's libretto for The Application. It contained plenty of wry humour, highlighting as it did the kind of frustrations that we have all experienced when dealing with officialdom...The score is well-constructed, containing finely-wrought sections for the excellent chorus (trained by Thuthuka Sibisi), and the whole was imaginatively directed by Geoffrey Hyland"
