Notes and Editorial Reviews

Holten's staging leans on Wagner's struggle to be the kind of novelistic artist he wanted to be while hindered by the confines of German court theatre… Venus [is] winningly played by Resmark as a kind of saucy Rosa Klebb spy on her author's life and emotions. Again as in the Ring Holten shows well in directing intense emotions… We never just sit in the imaginary best seat in the stalls but see the action from every possible voyeuristic angle.

– Gramophone [12/2011]
