Jason Victor Serinus
San Francisco Classical Voice, December 2014

…a combination of alive-to-the-moment singing, acting, and conducting, in which every recitative and musical phrase comes to life; mesmerizing projections; and a new and entirely plausible take on the story…[and] the superb Marius Kwiecien holds nothing back. The results are extraordinary. © 2014 San Francisco Classical Voice Read complete review

Richard Lawrence
Gramophone, December 2014

MOZART, W.A.: Don Giovanni (Royal Opera House, 2014) (NTSC) OA1145D
MOZART, W.A.: Don Giovanni (Royal Opera House, 2014) (Blu-ray, HD) OABD7152D

It is original, thought-provoking and superbly executed.

…the acting is beyond praise, the filming enabling one to appreciate the subtlety of the characters’ facial expressions. Mariusz Kwiecien´ has a dangerous charm and Alex Esposito, more friend than servant, is a perfect foil. Véronique Gens conveys Elvira’s genuine love for Giovanni very well. Malin Byström and Elizabeth Watts are very fine, as is the orchestra under Nicola Luisotti. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
