Led capably by Andrew Davis and centered around Renée Fleming, it's a pleasing [choice] . . . Sarah Connolly is incisive and amusing as the actress Clairon . . . Joseph Kaiser (Flamand) and Russell Braun (Olivier) play the creative suitors, and both give commendable, detailed performances . . . [Peter Rose] rises to his great monologue and is thoroughly entertaining.

. . . sorgfältig besetzt und stimmungsvoll optisch umgesetzt . . . Dieser feingeistige Schwanengesang hat in der silberstimmiger Fleming sein Zentrum. Andrew Davis dirigiert delikat, die übrige Besetzung . . . ist so stimmig wie erstklassig.
