FROM THE PRESS
"Peleggi shaped the score with abundant vitality and lyrical intensity,
drawing a crackling response from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra."
Tim Smith The Baltimore Sun
"The highlight of this performance came from the pit.
Conducted by Valentina Peleggi with immense energy and decisiveness,
the ENO orchestra was on excellent form: deliciously pert in a fast, taut prelude;
feather-light in the seguidilla; expansive, with beautifully sculpted woodwind solos
in the atmospheric opening of act three – and constantly, minutely sensitive t
o the shifts of dramatic temperature on stage throughout."
