Hugo Shirley
Gramophone, February 2014

STRAUSS, R.: Ariadne auf Naxos (Zurich Opera, 2006) (NTSC) 107249

…[this] is the most interesting recent performance [of Ariadne auf Naxos] on DVD—and the most involving. It adds a fair deal of extra complexity to the piece but is beautifully produced and directed, not to mention very well conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi. The cast is generally excellent, but in the end this account is made supremely compelling by Emily Magee’s powerfully committed central performance. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
