“[Shimell performs] the role well, singing strongly with good vocal inflection. The same could be said of all the young quartet of lovers with Anett Frisch as Fiordiligi being particularly notable in Come scoglio...the production involve[s] more sex and violence than humour”

International Record Review

March 2014

“Everyone in the cast collaborates well musically and dramatically, and they can handle the physicality asked of them onstage...Shimell's Don Alfonso is unnervingly suave, seductive, even Mephistophelian at times.”

Gramophone Magazine

April 2014

“No lover of radical productions myself, I found it fascinating. You will, too, provided you forget that Cosi is an opera buffa: this is serious stuff...Within the limits of Haneke's very particular view of the opera, the acting is perfect...The plam for singing goes to Anett Frisch but the rest of the cast, dominated by William Shimell's puppet-master, are not far behind.”
