Andrew Foster-Williams


"Andrew Foster-Williams's Golaud is the centre of this production. Awkward, conventional, stiff with unexpressed emotion, hideously disappointed, shoe-horned into suspicion and grotesquely realistic domestic violence, he is as much, if not more, the victim. It's beautiful singing, impassioned, truthful - I found Foster-Williams the most moving Golaud I have heard."
