..."All the above was flattered by Hartmut Haenchen’s expert ear for balance. His affection for the score was clear from the overture onward, and chorus and orchestra responded with a natural, warm sound and nonchalant style. It proved with simple directness that the opera is about the power of music to prevail over human frailty and chaos."..."It was an evening that made you fall in love – again – with Mozart’s mystic pantomime."
Peter Reed
