Acting honours were taken by the chorus of vices and devils - interestingly made-up and costumed, and well choreographed and suitably malevolent. But the stand-out was Mephistopheles (Gloria Lagou) who had a good grasp of the verse-speaking technique. She appeared a compelling combination of the sinister and the attractive.
Unhappily, though, the exchanges between Mephistopheles and Faustus, for me the heart of the drama, never had much life. Faustus could have been a little more dynamic; however, his was a very large and a difficult part, and in no way did his performance spoil a very enjoyable evening.
