Wozzeck | Staatsoper, Vienna | March 2013

“Anne Schwanewilms is the phenomenal Marie, with the appropriate vocal sound for the role, and moving in the Bible-reading scene.”

Die Presse, March 26, 2013

“Anne Schwanewilms was an equally fabulous Marie, characterised by her heartfelt warmth and understanding of Wozzeck but unable to resist  the Drum Major’s power. She makes Marie’s desperate admission of guilt in the third act entirely plausible, and her voice combines expressiveness with emotionality.”

Oesterreichisches Nachrichten, March 26, 2013

“Powerful, energetic, with a suggestion of brittle standoffishness, is (Anne Schwanewilms’s) soldier-loving Marie.”

Der Standard, March 26, 2013

“Anne Schwanewilms possesses a light, lyrical voice, which is not particularly large. But with all her potential she still makes a very impressive Marie. Both singers (Anne Schwanewilms and Simon Keenlyside) were truly spellbinding.”

Der neue Merkur, March 25, 2013

“With her penetrating timbre, Anne Schwanewilms joins the luckless Wozzeck on the boards of the Ring as the not so chaste Marie. Modest at the start, she steadily lifts her performance into a piercing, genuine despair.”
