Conducted by Brad Cohen, a first class ensemble cast included Kitty Whately and George von Bergen as the libidinous air-stewards, and countertenor James Laing as the paperless Refugee. Coloratura soprano Jennifer France (Die Fledermaus 2016, Ariadne auf Naxos 2018) made a triumphant company debut as the Controller, and reprised her performance in Barlow’s 2018 revival of the production for Scottish Opera with designer Andrew Riley.
