Press reviews

«A stellar cast of singers, a fulsome, fiery orchestra and a clever and compelling staging that caught my attention from the very opening.»
bachtrack, 01.05.22

«A final word must go to Noseda who conducted the Philharmonia Zürich brilliantly from the tender pianissimo opening to the many evocative and passionate climaxes throughout. Dramatic music-making at its finest.»
bachtrack, 01.05.22

«Shorn from thematic concepts that have multiplied over the past half-century, Homoki’s staging relies heavily on the characters’ personalities — and what the singers bring to the roles.»
Macon Telegraph, 03.05.22
