Michael Scott Rohan
Gramophone, November 2001

"The indoor scenes gain a natural, sometimes claustrophobic, intimacy, well captured in Derek Bailey's direction. The performers display the same naturalness - Roberta Alexander's heroine, sung with a warmth and fervour which exactly captures Jenufa's open and loving nature. The camera makes Lagridge a rathe rmature Laca but his sinewy tenor adn twisted, hungry demeanour render teh charactre's distorting jealousy and inner decency equally credible and sympathetic."

George Hall
BBC Music Magazine, November 2001

"One of the most remarkable creations of our time is that of our times is that of Anja Silja as the Kostelnicka in the Nikolaus Lehnhoff production of Jenufa from Glyndebourne (1989)... With the versatile Andrew Davis conducting, this is the kind of DVD one might use to demonstrate opera at its best."
