  • Thank you very much for a wonderful evening

    Watching your performances Carmen. On both of us has made a strong impression. Costumes, scenography and performance in general are very complementary. Everything was done very consistent. We both immediately noticed that you have devoted much attention to detail. These are visible in clothing and scenic setting.

  •  I have to say that I liked Carmen very much

    Especially I liked the scenography that worked very well. I could see that you did great job with all the singers and choir – with their moves and acting. Thank you for this opportunity

  • Pamela Howard’s Carmen is  really clear,

    … talented, honest and attractive hymn to the freedom

  • To just describe the visuals, does nothing really

    …to convey the atmosphere and the thought behind them, and the seamlessness between design and direction, that can only happen in their presence. I felt this was a very true and direct, unpretentious and intimate view of this very enduring work which focussed on the characters and the music… it drew you into the drama.

    Martin Morley

    Stage and Television designer

  • Pamela’s drawings don’t only communicate visually.

    If you listen carefully you could almost hear the people.
