Oliver's latest opera, Pincher Martin, based on the novel by William Golding, was staged at the RCM Britten Theatre in July 2014 to great critical acclaim: 

'This is an eloquent, succinct opera... In music and design..., Pincher Martin pinched and gripped. This opera deserves to live.' (The Times: ★★★★)

'Rudland appear[s] to have achieved that rare and valuable object: a contemporary work that is both challenging yet accessible. Despite its disturbing subject matter, Pincher Martin is lyrical, inventive, and above all a thoroughly engaging work' (Bachtrack: ★★★★)
