This film . . . couldn't be more successful as a production . . . There's a delightful air of energy and enjoyment among this cast that makes it a joy to watch -- and nary a cod cockney in sight! Dialogue is delivered in full actor's projection, rather than half-baked singer's voices . . . I would defy any modern opera company to come up with such a competent piece of work.

Es ist ein Vergnügen, die junge Janet Baker als liebestolle Polly zu sehen . . . Das English Chamber Orchestra unter der Leitung des inspiriert dirigierenden Meredith Davies lässt erkennen, wie viel Vergnügen es macht, diese pfiffige Partitur zu spielen.
