"Outstandingly filmed, this set marks a high point for live opera on DVD... I have no hesitation in making this new Trittico the top recommendation." Gramophone

"Can think of few operatic treats greater than a good performance of Puccini's unique trilogy of one-acters... I can't recommend this new Royal Opera production (the first for nearly half a century) too highly." The Daily Telegraph

"One will have to look far to find a better trio of performances than these." International Record Review

"A marathon production of Puccini's triptych is a masterclass in taut, nuanced drama..." The Guardian
