"Sir Colin Davis's cast is a strong one, with the lovers aptly taken by generally younger singers than in rival sets. The LSO play brilliantly... Sylvia McNair as Tytania has pure, silvery tone and Ian Bostridge is masterly in the tenor role of Flute. As Bottom the dark-toned Robert Lloyd responds strongly, with fine feeling for words." – The Penguin Guide.

“Everything is heard with great clarity, the sensuousness of Britten's ravishing score, with all its mysterious harmonies and sonorities, is fully realized, action and reaction among the singers are keenly heard...Another plus for the new set is the casting of the lovers with young singers in their early prime.”  – Gramophone
