“The conductor Duncan Ward – also a composer, which can only help in tackling a score as complex and layered as this – drew first-class performances from the Glyndebourne Tour orchestra and chorus.”

***** Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian, 29 October 2017

“Then there were the players, kings and queens to a man and woman, in most cases every bit as powerful in this autumn cast as their summer predecessors had been. And conductor Duncan Ward … corralled them all magnificently along with a tour orchestra that sounded as if it’s played this stuff for years.”

**** Mark Valencia, What’s On Stage, 25 October 2017

“Duncan Ward’s conducting has tremendous force. The playing and choral singing are exemplary.”

**** Tim Ashley, The Guardian, 23 October 2017

“In the pit, young Duncan Ward and his orchestra were rightly cheered. This Hamlet doesn’t just deserve your attention, it demands it.”
