Reviews

Cosi fan tutte, W.A. Mozart, Den Norske Opera, 17 November 2016

"Eir Inderhaug glitrer i sin rolle som Despina, med et stort spillerom i det komiske. Oppsetningen er den prisbelønte regissøren Jonas Corell Petersens debut som operaregissør. Han breier seg ikke med fiffige overregisserte grep."

Cosi fan tutte, W.A. Mozart, Den Norske Opera, 17 November 2016
