From Musical America Worldwide, April 6

“The March 29 performance by the Bavarian State Opera, in its first visit to the U.S., came across not as an orchestral showpiece with vocal obbligato but as a bona fide opera. This was due to the singers' prowess, to the stunning playing of the orchestra (100 strong), and, most of all, to Music Director Kirill Petrenko.”
