CRITIC REVIEWS:

"Glinka's RUSIAN AND LYUDMILA is a gem of an opera! It should be in the standard repertoire of every opera company but, sadly, it is not. Glinka's opera was a seminal work in the history of Russian opera, and for good reason! There are the great arias, the great choruses, and the breath-taking ballet music! It's a story to match Mozart's MAGIC FLUTE for fantasy, and every bit as good an opera! The performance is first rate. The opera world is being short-changed because this opera and so many others are rarely if ever heard.”

- Stephen Schoeman





“The charismatic and almost demonic Gergiev conducts with his systematic, unabated passion for music which is most certainly in his blood and his players definitely do him proud. The cast is also top notch on all counts with Netrebko and Gorchakova particularly impressive.”
