Teodor Currentzis:
“Mozart wanted the clownerie of this libretto – and then set to it his best music, the music of angels. It’s that contradiction which lifts you out of your morality, returns you to the instinctive feelings of your youthful naïveté, to those beautiful, playful feelings of your first love. You understand who you are again."

The Independent
This second of Currentzis’s trio of Mozart’s Da Ponte operas confirms that the standard set with Le Nozze Di Figaro was no fluke. The almost cult-like dedication of this musicAeterna orchestra and singers instils a freshness and intensity that brings new life to even this most ludicrous of comic masquerades.

Financial Times, Richard Fairman
Be prepared to be exhilarated and exasperated. Greek conductor Teodor Currentzis is not one to settle for the status quo.
