Opera Now: review Die Frau ohne Schatten

In de augutuseditie van het internationale operamagazine Opera Now verscheen een lovende recensie van Marco Arturo Marelli's productie Die Frau ohne Schatten, die in april bij ons op de planken stond.

“Some productions present Die Frau ohne Schatten as too much of an overwhelmingly good thing, but this was an exhilarating evening that ran the gamut from minute nuance to house-filling decibels. Alexander Joel's superb conducting of Strauss's huge score favoured transparency and momentum, even if - quite excusably - he indulged Thomas Johannes Mayer's most glowingly expansive moments as Barak the Dyer.”

“Occasional touches of sentimentality were by no means out of place, and big-heartedness triumphed in Marco Arturo Marelli's staging of the opera's closing quartet.”
