'It has the colour, warmth and escapism of the best of what we love in musicals and the familiar-yet-new resonance of what Ashman and Menken did for the Disney renaissance. With absolute conviction ‘Mascherato' carves its own slice of Italian joy which leaves me in an exuberant musical afterglow!'
'The story of Mascherato is beautifully told through the combined forces of orchestra and cast.'
'Filled with drama and romance, Mascherato has great potential as a musical – with a score that is of the highest quality and a story that has plenty of twists and turns it would be fascinating to see how it would come to life on stage.'
"I personally wish more recordings were like this"
'The original score, by Michael Elderkin, is utterly wonderful. It’s truly enchanting, and feels as if it should belong to a fairy tale.'
'We were excited from the haunting prologue and in love by ‘the carnival way’, a fun, joyous song full of life and vibrancy.'
