Rob Maynard
MusicWeb International, January 2016

Karen Kain and John Meehan make a most engaging Widow and Count Danilo, while Yoko Ichino and Raymond Smith are kept very busy in their substantial secondary roles. All four are accomplished dancers and successfully convey the appropriate degree of comic high-spirits that the ballet requires. The other featured dancers all acquit themselves creditably and the members of the corps de ballet, flatteringly costumed in the gorgeous fashions of the Belle Époque, throw themselves into successive Pontevedrian and Parisian parties and balls with suitable enthusiasm and skill. Ermanno Florio leads the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra in an assured performance that adds both verve and glitter to Lehár’s familiar melodies. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review
