“Anja Kampe is the Leonore of one’s dreams and Torsten Kerl’s Florestan complements her ideally, with thrilling tone from them both in their duet.” Opera Magazine

“…exquisitely sung by Milne, Kampe, Kennedy and Sherratt, which makes this the second Glyndebourne production in one season to have raised the bar on ensemble singing to a dizzying height.” Independent on Sunday

“A moving and enthralling Fidelio…Glyndebourne has pulled it off, in a revival that shows the place on top form building on teamwork, attention to detail and rigorous rehersal…” The Daily Telegraph

“Glyndebourne’s searing, sublime Fidelio is an example of what can happen - but seldom does - when everything comes together in opera…Do anything to get a ticket: opera simply does not come better than this.” The Sunday Telegraph
