Judith Malafronte
Opera News, November 2014

Austrian actor Tobias Moretti imbues the [Bassa] with a burned-out longing that Desirée Rancatore responds to, and the soprano brings a lovely romantic sensibility to Mozart’s lines, while keeping the rhythmic profile intact. © 2014 Opera News Read complete review

MOZART, W.A.: Entführung aus dem Serail (Die) (Salzburg Festival, 2013) (Blu-ray, HD) 108102

Adrian Marthaler’s production reimagines the opera as a modern-day tale of lust and temptation set in the rarefied world of high fashion…[his] updating is more imaginative than simply giving us a lecture on Christian-Muslim relations.

Javier Camarena makes a nicely light, lyrical Belmonte, and there is a lively supporting pair in the Blonde and Pedrillo of Rebecca Nelsen and Thomas Ebenstein. The production ends glamorously with a fashion parade. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
