The Atlanta Opera
“Conductor Christopher Allen, recipient of the 2017 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award, manages the difficult job of balancing the need for a lively pace with an equally compelling instinct to savor the languorous prettiness of Donizetti’s sumptuous music: He brings out interesting variety from the musicians and instruments from the opening moments of the overture as melody moves from section to section.”
Andrew Alexander, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The production was set for success with...an orchestra led by Christopher Allen's consistent and clean conducting."
Daniel Weisman, Schmopera
