"The Silence of the Bees" is an enterprising, entertaining, stimulating and thoroughly commendable piece of complex musical theatre...using a wide variety of musical forms and styles ranging from a cappella voices to accompanied aria.

The overall timbre of the ensemble was that of a West End show...

"The Silence of the Bees" (was) successful as an original piece of music theatre, and all the creative parties concerned should congratulate themselves on envisioning and executing, with such panache, a concept as groundbreaking as this one...such a high professional artistic standard.
