The Bregenz Festival is a critically acclaimed highlight of the opera summer. The ‘Opera on the Floating Stage’ entrances thousands every year. A short extract from this film will appear in the forthcoming James Bond Film Quantum of Solace. This spellbinding production stars Nadja Michael, Zoran Todorovic and Gidon Saks, with Ulf Schirmer at the helm of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.

“Nadja Michael….sings with glittering, cool, unvaried assurance and looks stunning” Evening Standard on her recent performance as Salome at ROH.

BBC Music Magazine

February 2009

****

“…there are… many interesting features of this performance, the most impressive of which is Scarpia as played by Gidon Saks. This is the most disgusting and convincing portrayal I have ever seen on stage. …Nadja Michael's Tosca is elegant if squally, and Zoran Todorovich is a convincing actor, though he sings in an almost unremitting forte...”

Penguin Guide

2010 edition

*/**

“The singing of the main characters is impressive. Nadja Michael's Vissi d'arte and Zoran Todorovich's E lucevan le stelle do not disappoint, and Scarpia's performance exudes sheer villainy. The chorus and orchestra, directed by Ulf Schirmer, are strongly supportive.”
