R E V I E W S :

"A strikingly staged, beautifully sung production." -- New York Times

"Pierre Audi’s
Read more daringly minimalist production bespeaks a belief in opera as theatre that one rarely encounters… This is opera as music drama, and an experience not to be missed." -- New York Post

"That the presentness of theatre and the pastness of music can coincide is one of the miracles of opera, and is one of the miracles of Mr. Audi’s production." -- The New Yorker

"This splendid performance is probably more sumptuous than what Venetians heard in 1642." -- Gramophone
