Programme Notes

“Music, awake her, strike!” So says Paulina as the statue of Hermione comes to life at the end of this magical play. “Descend; be stone no more; approach; strike all that look upon with marvel.” In this production Jeremy Irons played a memorable Leontes. "I should guess that in years to come this production will chiefly be remembered for Nigel Hess's music...." (Sunday Telegraph) "It is impossible to imagine a season without the melodic contributions of Nigel Hess." (Michael Coveney, Drama Magazine) "....a splendidly full-blooded score from Nigel Hess...." (Irving Wardle, The Times)
