“Anja Silja's Emilia Marty in Makropulos at Glyndebourne is a nonpareil triumph… This is a near-perfect production by Nikolaus Lehnhoff”  WALL STREET JOURNAL

“I am lost for superlatives… perhaps heart-stopping, soul shattering, out-of-body experience will have to do, to describe this brilliant new production”  THE SPECTATOR

“Anja Silja…….an electrifying performance….a perfect example of just what video opera can and ought to be”  OPERA NOW
