Bob Rose
Fanfare, July 2013

Yijie Shi, who sings the role of Eumeno, is the vocal star of this performance. He has an excellent technique and a pleasing lyric sound. Marco Palazzi is a good Polibio…Victoria Zaytseva sings well in the trouser role of Silveno and acts quite well.

The conducting by Corrado Rovaris is fine and the quality of the picture is excellent…this rare opera is an example of the genius of the young Rossini and is highly recommended to all lovers of the composer. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review

Opera News, June 2013

…Livermore and his energetically complicit conductor, Corrado Rovaris, extract the best from their talented young cast…The two ladies—soprano María José Moreno…and mezzo Victoria Zaytseva—do nicely indeed as the young lovers. But it’s the title-rolers who command the show: basso Mirco Palazzi sings a handsomely sturdy Polibio, and tenor Yijie Shi…as Demetrio the elder, is a special standout, persuasively alternating incisive ring and honeyed tenderness. Sound and image are first-rate. © 2013 Opera News Read complete review
