Scott Cantrell
The Dallas Morning News, January 2004

"These Arthaus DVDs, distributed by Naxos, capture a riveting 2000 Salzburg Festival production, designed and staged by the late Herbert Wernicke. Deborah Polaski certainly captures the desperation of both Cassandra and Dido... Sylvain Cambreling conducts most sympathetically, and the Orchestre de Paris really brings the bright colors to life. Vivid, spacious sound, too."



Sebastian Spreng
El Nuevo Herald, June 2003

"...el DVD del Festival de Salzburg 2000 [es] de impactante nivel visual y musical. Con un solo, esplendido escenario de blancura hiriente, el director enfatiza la perspectiva que los troyanos fueron una tribu guerrera... y los cartaginenses una sociedad pacifica... La americana Deborah Polaski interpreta las dos protagonistas femeninas: Casandra y Dido. De porte escultorico Polaski cumple con aplomo las tremendas exigencias pero no borra las memorias de antecesoras tan ilustres, La Orquesta de Paris y los coros completan impecables la espaciosa lectura de Sylvain Cambreling. Anadiendo factura visual y sonora, el espectador se siente literalmente en una butaca del teatro. Una version que es complemento ideal de la centenaria del MET con Placido Domingo, Jessye Norman y Tatiana Troyanos. "
