Richard Sininger
American Record Guide, November 2015

As the orchestra enters and tunes, the people on stage pantomime or dance or generally cavort around. …It seems as if each person has his or her own private choreographic pattern to follow. It is unusual—even weird—but fascinating to watch and brilliantly executed.

I recommend it heartily. For Strauss fans, this is a must! © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

STRAUSS, R.: Feuersnot (Teatro Massimo, 2014) (NTSC) 109065
STRAUSS, R.: Feuersnot (Teatro Massimo, 2014) (Blu-ray, HD) 109066

This Italian production is inspiringly directed by the formidably talented Emma Dante who engulfs the entire stage in a burst of colour and incessant movement and dancing, because this is Midsummer Night, a night of love.

Italian conductor Gabriele Ferro, 80 years young, makes the music shimmer and pulsate with passion. A cast of thousands, soloists, chorus, dancers plus an omnipresent children’s choir singing like angels, makes the show like a fairy tale. © 2015 The WholeNote Read complete review
