“Anne Schwanewilms sings the technically phenomenal Elettra”

Der Tagesspiegel

“But for sheer vocal thrill the honours go to Anne Schwanewilms in the role of the self-torturing Greek princess Elettra, vainly in love with Idamante. Her sweet, wheedling sound in ‘Idol mio’ gives way to piercing shrieks and insane laughing in her final furious aria ‘D’Oreste.’ It’s as if she’s about to combust with anger, and it’s the highlight of the evening.”
