' The open stage with curtain raised revealed a palace backing onto the sea, the gentle ebb and flow of the quiet waters gently beating against the walls. The night’s sky was highlighted by an enormous moon, giving the whole auditorium a sense of lunar tranquillity. When turned, the palace walls on a revolving platform revealed a hollow cavern and some steps carved into a creamy-white rock. For this alone the performance deserves commendation – Lara Booth and John Bishop’s combined image of ancient Ithaca was enchanting.'
