REVIEWS

‘De Billy’s version is both poetic and dramatic… A first class cast - Deborah Polaski is an excellent artist who brings to life a rich Isolde, full of hate and love, despair and abandonment.’ -- El Mundo
‘A miraculous orchestra: a torrent of romantic passion and fever… A loving tribute to the opera which revolutionised music history.’ -- El Pais
