"Simply the most compelling account of L'Orfeo yet produced...John Mark Ainsley is simply superb as Orfeo…" BBC Music Magazine on L'Orfeo
"The visual impact of this Spartan production is such that it will not be easily forgotten. It is recorded in surround sound...All in all this a quality product." (MusicWeb May 2006 on the Wagner)
"José Antonio Gutiérrez's production… looks beautiful thanks to Cabanes's feeling for colour ochres and blues dominate and perspective." BBC Music on Aida
"Roland Bracht's magnificently booming voice and expressive acting also makes him a Bartolo to reckon with…" MusicWeb on The Marriage of Figaro
"Under the shrewd direction of McVicar, Anne Sofie von Otter gave us a gypsy of mercurial temperament, a tease, a dangerous flirt, and a woman intensely conscious of her sexual magnetism and of her public notoriety.' Daily Telegraph on Carmen
