«John Axelrod, with a refined baton, fully captures the vaguely hysterical mood in the score and makes it rich with colors, thanks to a complicit and very punctual orchestra, and a beautiful variety in dynamics and rhythmic solutions, without neglecting the lyrical needs, all in great harmony with the stage» wrote Alessandro Cammarano on OperaClick
