Royal Opera House - The Firework-Maker's Daughter - Chulak

The young Australian soprano Lauren Fagan makes a charismatic Lila, but there are other star turns in this fine ensemble show, most notably by Ross Ramgobin, Peter Kirk, and countertenor Tai Oney as a fancifully-conceived pet elephant.

- Michael Church, The IndependentRead the article

Peter Kirk brings irrepressible charm and an infectious sense of fun to Chulak, the cheeky elephant boy with an eye for profit.

Soho Theatre, London - The Magic Flute - Tamino

"Peter Kirk’s Tamino has boyish charm"
