World Premiere recording on Video! Church corruption, human violence and a daughter who plots revenge on her abusive father Goldschmidt's Beatrice Cenci has every ingredient for a gripping opera. At Bregenz, Johannes Erath brought Beatrice Cenci on stage for the first time. Although written 70 years ago, one musically quickly associates Puccini or other Romantics (Neue Zurcher Zeitung), underlined by Goldschmidt's own words, saying it became a real Belcanto-Opera. Johannes Debus conducts the Wiener Symphoniker with true feeling for the score . In the title role, Gal James is moving and the baritone Christoph Pohl has all the vocal charisma. (The Telegraph). A brilliantly focused staging of a neglected work (The Telegraph), a great, wonderful evening (Deutschlandfunk Kultur).
