Michael Cookson
MusicWeb International, August 2016

Heroine Lisetta played by Neapolitan soprano Cinzia Forte gives a satisfying performance. …Pavia-born Marabelli sings his cavatina ‘Co’ ’sta grazia’ with an agreeable sense of amusement… Wearing a ridiculous blonde shoulder length wig Laurent Kubla does all that is asked of him as hotel keeper Filippo. In his aria ‘Quando la fama altera’ the Belgian baritone displays an adequate voice… In the minor roles, Julie Bailly as Doralice and Roger Joakim as Monsù Traversen impress with their limited opportunities. Under the sensibly paced conducting of Jan Schultsz the Orchestra of the Opéra Royal de Wallonie plays with ample spirit with praise due to the worthy chorus. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review
