 “All credit, then, to University College Opera for presenting the British premiere of “Vanda”, and making a huge success of it…The jewel in the University College Opera's crown is its student chorus"


Hilary Finch, THE TIMES  

“The sheer energy and commitment of the UCO orchestra, robustly directed by Charles Peebles, and the valour of student cameos such as Josie Eccles’s witch Homena and Hal Brindley’s Herald well rewarded a packed house.”



Rodney Bennett, OPERA NOW

“It was Charles Peebles and the University College orchestra and large chorus which made this well-driven, virtually uncut UK premiere so memorable…This dedicated ensemble showed musicianship in abundance.”
