"David Coomber is a giddy, hyper-active Amadeus Mozart. One almost thinks he has Attention Deficit Disorder or might be on the autistic spectrum, it’s such a big, bold performance. But Coomber can break your heart in a thrice when he is crushed by disappointment after disappointment. His enthusiasm for his projects; his championing of the common people in his operas; his impishness when he’s being risqué and his staunch defence of his work, create a wonderful performance of a genius." - Lynn Slotkin, Slotkin Review (February 21, 2018) http://slotkinletter.com/2018/02/review-amadeus
