This performance was filmed in Munich’s National Theatre with a splendid cast. The cast is strong throughout and conductor Ivor Bolton obviously loves this score. Nadja Michael is a superb singing actress… She makes the most of the role of Medea and receives a huge ovation for her remarkable performance. Video and audio are outstanding. © 2012 ClassicalCDReview.com Read complete review
The music of the opera is full of melodic inspiration…Shrader’s plangent well articulated tone and fluent coloratura in the demanding tessitura bodes well…I look forward to hearing him again.
I commend the superb orchestral contribution by early music expert Ivor Bolton moving up a generation or three. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
