Richard Balcombe

“Most of the fun comes from the pit, where Balcombe’s baton really sparkles…..he clearly knows and loves his Sullivan, and gets sprightly playing from the ENO orchestra.”

Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times – The Gondoliers

“Richard Balcombe does a star turn as arranger and musical director, with some very fancy footwork through the Rodgers songbook.”

Claudia Pritchard, The Independent – Shall we dance?

“The star of the show is Richard Balcombe, who gives the score an easy flow and comes up with some pizazz for the showstoppers.”

George Hall, The Stage – Wonderful Town
