Reviews

  • Britten's Peter Grimes

    Jeffrey Lloyd-Roberts saved the production by delivering an authentic, commendable performance as Grimes, from the side of the stage, as a silent Skelton enacted the part. Lloyd-Roberts also effectively navigated his own role as Reverend Horace Adams.

    Gillian Wills Australian Book Review
  • Britten's Peter Grimes

    Jeffrey Lloyd-Roberts sings and acts as if his life – and not just his career – depends on it.
