Euryanthe | Glyndebourne | June 2002

“…the performance is carried by Schwanewilms, who looks divine, moves with classical grace and sings with Straussian purity of tone. She is not only technically perfect, she is also very touching.”

Financial Times

“…the heroine’s music is often very beautiful indeed, and as sung by Schwanewilms, an unfailingly expressive, sensual soprano, it was irresistible.”

The Guardian

“Anne Schwanewilms as Euryanthe is a natural stage star. Her great quality is an ethereal stillness. She brings to the role a lieder singer’s inwardness and attention to fine detail, but the voice is possessed of a thrilling reach, too.”
