Mark Mandel
Opera News, July 2013

…Lyubov Petrova has a bright lyric-coloratura soprano; Yetzabel Arias Fernandez has a darker, fuller lyric soprano; Jennifer Rivera has a lean lyric mezzo; Sofia Soloviy is a soprano with a strong low register who here suggests a dramatic mezzo; Milena Storti is a true contralto. Veteran tenor Raúl Giménez and young tenor Antonio Lozano complete a cast of fine singers…As thespians, too, there’s no weak link. Rivera, who plays the most volatile of the young leads, is a particularly graceful, natural actress. Giménez is authoritative as a conflicted father and clement king.

Best of all is Pergolesi’s exhilarating music, superbly conducted from the harpsichord by Alessandro De Marchi and played by his Piedmont period-instrument orchestra Academia Montis Regalis. © 2013 Opera News Read complete review
