Reviews ‘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
