What an inspired and exciting opera this is. Gorgeous characters, a busy story rich in incident and an exhilarating mix of music. Delight follows delight. Pinocchio might seem a familiar story but this production takes on the darker aspects of Collodi's original tale, including the moment when Pinocchio is hanged. It will surprise adults who have only seen the Disney version. [...] On press night youngsters on booster cushions were transfixed from first to last. It really is that good.--Kevin Berry, The Stage, 27 December 2007

Vocal score. Opera in two acts. Libretto: Alasdair Middleton. Commissioned by Opera North and Sadler's Wells London.
