Stuart Sillitoe
MusicWeb International, May 2017

The performance is very good, with the Israel Chamber Orchestra more than up to the challenges provided by the score. The singing of the main characters is excellent. Marc Horus as Till and Christa Ratzenböck as Nele are well matched and full of character. It is Joachim Goltz as the arch villain, the Provost, who steals the show; at times, he brings a true sense of menace to the role. All three here also prove to be fine actors, something that their roles in this opera require. The rest of the cast members and the EntArteOpera Choir also prove to be in good voice. There is an occasional bit of roughness in the singing, but this only adds to the drama of the production and seems to fit well with the action. © 2017 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Pizzicato, April 2017

The cast is as excellent and even though the sound is not well balanced the orchestra is impressive under the baton of Martin Sieghart. © 2017 Pizzicato
