Reviews

The Lower Saxony State Orchestra Hanover under its new General Music Director Stephan Zilias knows how to play the wide arc between the well-known hits and the iridescent soundscapes of the new score with a lot of joy in playing.
Achim Dombrowski
Zilias conducted the excellent Deutsche Oper Chorus, Orchestra and soloists with assurance and underscored the bel canto melodies for which Bellini is known.
