…there is a firm musical discipline at work, thanks to the company’s solid symphony orchestra and a conductor, Rumon Gamba, who clearly relishes the score’s rush of colorful instrumental effects and dramatic clashes. He maintains considerable momentum but proves inconsistent in interactions with the singers.

Gamba’s conducting helps mezzo Ingrid Tobiasson underline key words and suggest Klytämnestra’s torment and self-deception in her phrasing. Even when her voice grows hoarse, Tobiasson’s diction and dramatic sense lend authority to her characterization. © 2016 Opera News Read complete review
