Orchestre et Choeurs de l’Opera National de Lyon
Daniele Rustioni has been principal conductor of Opéra National de Lyon since September 2017 and from the 2021–22 season has been principal guest conductor of the Munich Opera. His previous Naxos recordings featured the symphonies of Elisabetta Brusa (8573437, 8574263).
Of the stage direction, Bachtrack.com wrote that ‘Barrie Kosky rises to the challenge with dark wit spiced with surreal burlesque.’ It added that the role of Tsar Dodon was ‘Gloriously sung by Dmitry Ulyanov’ and wrote of Andrey Popov, in the role of the Astrologer: ‘It’s a stratospheric tenor role but Andrei Popov coped valiantly with its demands.’
Nina Minasyan as Queen of Shemakha ‘was the vocal star of the performance, negotiating the chromatic contours of the Queen’s Hymn to the Sun with aplomb, her sensual singing nuanced with an exquisite pianissimo and secure top notes; with a voice like that, she could wrap any monarch round her little finger’ (Bachtrack.com).
