    The Stage

    "Lavish and uplifting - an incredibly handsome production ... John Hodgkinson’s flatulent, thunder-lunged Toby Belch and Michael Cochrane’s quavering Andrew Aguecheek make a delightful double act."
  • Four stars

    Daily Mail

    "The cornerstone is Simon Higlett’s set which seduces the eye with the rich Moroccan colours of the Arts and Crafts movement steeped in sepia light. Awash with spectacle and fastidious detail, it’s surely another seasonal hit for the RSC."

    Evening Standard

    "The RSC has gone all-out on a sumptuous design (three cheers for Simon Higlett). An unending delight; John Hodgkinson is a deliciously mercurial Sir Toby and Michael Cochrane’s Sir Andrew is cherishable."
