La boheme; Opera North, Newcastle Theatre Royal

"Music from the pit, under the baton of Matthew Kofi Waldren, was perfectly married with action on stage."

"It is an incredible delight to hear the huge group of musicians filling the room with their swirling yet precise sound. Tonight's conductor was Matthew Kofi Waldren and he kept a tight ship throughout."
