“Anna Maria Panzarella tops a fine cast, the staging is colourful and Alessandrini conducts with zest.”
“This eighteenth-century premonition of The Mikado is a delight...The cast is good, though there's only one star: Anna Maria Panzarella (Agnesina) does the tomboy thing terribly well and as she falls in love it's not just her costumes and the music which become more feminine, it's also her acting and singing...'L'inimico delle donne is very simply filmed...You really feel you are there. And it's where I want to be. A delight from start to finish.”
