Charles H Parsons
American Record Guide, March 2016

The performance is outstanding. Under Elder’s direction the orchestra lashes out in dramatic fashion as needed, then settles in to romantic lyricism. Hannan’s touching Rusalka is all quiet, unforced beauty, shimmering, floating with ease. As Jezibaba Howard is a force to be reckoned with. Clad in solemn black, looking like a domineering school marm, she pours out her dire warnings and reproaches. Cannan’s Foreign Princess is a fiery portrayal, all sex and sensuality. Treleaven looks like a romantic hero. He is rather prosaic; but he has the voice: big, burly, unforced. As the Forester, Byles is a comic delight, along with Kimm’s spirited, charming Kitchen Boy. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, October 2015

David Pountney’s extraordinary staging is a viable alternative to more traditional versions and supported by a good musical performance, it provides an enriching entertainment to everybody familiar with this opera. © 2015 Pizzicato
