Notes & Reviews:

"...Visually, [this production] is stunningly austere, with two tall spiral staircases, one at each side of the stage, and the black space in between covered with water representing the sea. The music is far from austere, though its passion is incredibly contained... Saariaho wrote the part of the Countess for Upshaw - she has more widely-ranging melodies, sung with complete confidence and conviction... With wonderfully clear and comprehensive sound, this is an incredibly beautiful and moving experience." ***** -BBC Music Magazine
