"Norah Amsellem’s Violetta flourishes - vocally and dramatically, nothing is a challenge to her… Thanks to Pizzi’s intelligence, every detail in the action works in this production… Jesus Lopez Cobos’ maturity is astonishing… his perfect conducting looks for emotion and finds it… This production is only waiting for a DVD to make history." - Le Monde de la Musique
"A triumphant success… Norah Amsellem is an absolutely exceptional Violetta, a complete and fascinating artist." - L’Opera
"Amsellem lucidly conveys the agony of Violetta’s emotions and her generosity of character. Violetta has a surge of energy, runs out onto the balcony, collapses and dies. It is as good an acted and sung portrayal of this heart-rending finale as I have heard and seen in a long time…Amsellem’s dramatically acted and well-sung portrayal of one of the greatest roles in the operatic repertoire makes this performance, in an updated but not way-out setting, worthy of recommendation." - Robert J.
