Great review in Opernwelt

Januar kicks off with a great review in Opernwelt for our production of I Capuleti e i Montecchi.

"Bergen National Opera has been around for 10 years (since 2010 under the leadership of Scot Mary Miller) and has in these years, with limited budget, produced performances that larger and richer opera houses could envy them"

"Nino Surguladze is an extraordinary Romeo. She plays with total commitment and sings with a velvety voice, warm and yet with drama»

"Kristina Mkhitaryan delivers a rarely heard, superb Giulietta: round, beautiful phrasing, in short, touching"

"Real Bel Canto from both singers, pearl necklaces instead of individual pearls. They deliver Bellini's exquisite lyricism and light perfectly" "...

Edvard Grieg Kor was exquisite, and choreographic accurately portrayed as a fencing club from the previous century"

"Director and Bel Canto specialist Fabio Biondi delivers a dynamic and agogically fast interpretation, which respects both the contrasts and complexities of the score, while providing space for bright and beautiful instrumental details"

Review by Gerhard Persché.
