“The production has abundant atmosphere and always appeals to the eye...The singing is uniformly good...Fabrizio Ventura’s conducting brings much experience to bear upon proceedings, and there is a palpable sense of teamwork and commitment.”
“Malagnini's Carlo has a top and the ability to use it that Franco Corelli wouldn't have disowned, and his relationship with Cellia Costia's Elisabetta brings tears to the eyes, as does Alla Pozniak's Eboli regretting her 'fatal gift of beauty'..its musical achievement is high.”
“Lee’s production is budget traditional and Fabrizio Ventura’s conducting does the job. Cellia Costea’s Elisabetta has the measure of the role if not quite the required vocal subtlety.”
