  • '... Hengelbrock brings the vivacity for which he is famed. It’s ideal for Così fan tutte where timing and clarity are important. Excellent balance - the harpsichord continuo especially vivid'. Opera Today

    'Thomas Allen's Alfonso and Rebecca Evans's Despina... are impeccable' The Guardian

    "Add the usual excellence of the Covent Garden orchestra conducted by Thomas Hengelbrock, who coaxed the perfect balance from them between instruments and singers, and it all added up to an evening of pure joy, both for the audience at Covent Garden and those at some 200 cinemas worldwide which broadcast this live." The Express
