Krassimira Stoyanova is heading a truly supreme cast and emerges as the 'one in a thousand, the true Strauss lyric-dramatic soprano who can soar and swoop, working miracles on phrases that never stop coming' (The Artsdesk).
Alvis Hermanis’ colourful production brings oriental flair to Salzburg, his 'staging was spectacular above all else' (Opera Today). 'Once more, this very rarely presented opera returned successfully on stage, leaving the audience with unforgettable impressive images embedded in soft romantic sound.' (Opera Online).
