New York Philharmonic, 2017

Staged concert

One of The New York Times Best Classical Music Performances of 2017

"…the Philharmonic, Mr. Gilbert and the director Louisa Muller have stripped the work to its sinews. It is a stark vision—you might be reminded of Ivo Van Hove's scorched-earth approach to classic plays—that pares away almost everything but the music and the characters.…it was a remarkable evening of music theater." New York Times

"…by fostering interactions between the performers, the staging enhanced the theatrical effectiveness of the presentation." Opera News
