1/2 This opera about a starving political prisoner is rendered with more than its share of fresh, passionate ideas.
The Guardian - Andrew Clements[Davis] is on urgent, impulsive form and communicates that theatrical immediacy to all the soloists and especially to the LSO, which responds with playing of real bite and character.
Daily Telegraph - Richard WigmoreThe overwhelming reasons for acquiring this bargain-priced Fidelio, recorded at the Barbican last spring, are Christine Brewer's magnificently voiced, eloquently phrased Leonore and Colin Davis's incandescent direction of the LSO at their glorious best.
