"Thanks to its salacious subject-matter, and a score that manages to be both racy and ravishing, [Powder Her Face] travels well, having already notched up 15 productions since its 1995 Cheltenham/Almeida premiere," wrote Andrew Clark for ft.com on December 2, 2002, in a review of a Flanders Opera production.
