"Carmen Jakobi directed, an imaginative and lively interpretation that was skilfully realised…As Giovanni finally descended to hell through the stage, bathed in smoke and red light, the spine was suitably tingled ...Oliver Gilmour's conducting...articulated the drama superbly. His choice of tempos throughout was judicious: the Champagne Aria, for instance, fizzed without foaming out of control and 'Mi tradi' maintained momentum while leaving the long-breathed Elin Pritchard room to shape Elivira's sinuous lines to languishing, obsessive effect."
