"Ermione leapt into the house as a drama - engaging, fiery, tragic, profound" - Opera
"Anna Caterina Antonacci’s acting, florid singing including decoration of the vocal line, and diction are at one with the wide demands of the role of Ermione. Hers is formidable interpretation that is appropriately acclaimed at the curtain calls.
The … roles are all well sung and acted. Of particular note is Paul Austin Kelly as Orestes’ companion Pylades and Gwynne Howell as Phoenix. Andrew Davis conducts in style, moving the drama along whilst allowing the singers adequate time for their phrasing and written vocal acrobatics. The sound is first class and will satisfy the most discerning listener." - Robert McKechnie, Music Web International
