Reviews
“Here the stage director Tine Topsøe has used the historic theatre and the beautifully painted set pieces to highlight the pastoral aspects of Handels opera.” “Olof Boman leads the Confidencen baroque orchestra with steady hand, lending it a simultaneously transparent and weightless sound suitable to the piece.” “Polyphemus – who in Topsøe’s interpretation is a cast out figure turning his sorrow into aggressive malice – is performed solidly and with feeling by Staffan Liljas, who has the most stage presence of them all.”
Bodil Hasselgren

“This is a performance at the highest level musically – two hours of pure joy. Everything is steered with driving energy and light touch by Olof Boman, who under the name Confidencen Opera & Music Festival Orchestra has gathered a dozen of Swedens best baroque musicians.” “With his fine phrasing, Staffan Liljas binds together the wild melodic jumps of his Polyphemos and gives the evil villain human sensibilities.”
