Peter Hoare has received unanimously outstanding reviews for his portrayal of Sharikov in the London premiere of Raskatov’s ‘A Dog’s Heart’.  Simon McBurney’s chilling production for ENO tells the story of a stray dog that becomes human after his master performs a Frankenstein-like organ transplant.

Raskatov – A DOG’S HEART (English National Opera)

“Peter Hoare gives a quite chillingly brilliant performance as the dog-man”
The Telegraph, Rupert Christiansen (Nov 2010)

“……..when Sharik becomes Sharikov, the foul-mouthed, spitting, pissing, nose-picking, balalaika-strumming, lout of the species – the excellent Peter Hoare – whose act one curtain line makes us an offer we can (with some relief) refuse.”
The Independent, Edward Seckerson (Nov 2010)

“Peter Hoare is outrageously excellent as the brute the dog turns into.”
The Express, William Hartston (Nov 2010)

“the real plus of ENO’s version is the assumption of the dog’s “human” form by Peter Hoare, a scratchy, goofy, nakedly uninhibited portrayal that marries vulgarity and pathos.”
Financial Times, Andrew Clark (Nov 2010)
