BroadwayBaby review (4 stars): "There have been by my count no less than six adaptations of Macbeth at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, yet the China Anhui Opera Institute’s offering may be the most unusual. Chinese opera aficionados don’t get many opportunities to see the art form in the UK so will enjoy this, but it is accessible and interesting enough for anyone with a basic understanding of the plot of Macbeth to watch and enjoy. It is even, to fall utterly for the cliche, a wonderful example of the universality of Shakespeare."
