Nikolaus Harnoncourt created an interpretation in which Haydn’s work can become a veritable gem of opera literature.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2010

“With the ever-responsive Concentus Musicus, [Harnoncourt] duly mines the comically disruptive potential of Haydn's music with unabashed glee... The comic leads are ideally cast...an inventive, thoroughly entertaining performance of a zany, sometimes touching comedy. If you're still sceptical about Haydn's operas, this may convert you.”

International Record Review

January 2011

“[Genaux] sings with easy flexibility and sophisticated style...The rich-voiced mezzo Maite Beaumont's Lisetta does well with the patter...Bahrmann sings strongly, with fine coloratura...[Harnoncourt] is at the helm of his ensemble, the Concentus Musicus Wien, which responds to his every intention with spirited accomplishment.”
