International press commends this year’s opera performances


The international leading opera magazines “Opéra Magazine” and “Ópera Actual” highly praised the organization and elevated artistic level of this year’s 15th Pafos Aphrodite Festival which took place on 6, 7 and 8 September at the Square of the Medieval Castle in Pafos, presenting G. Donizetti’s opera “L’Elisir d’Amore”.

 

It is noteworthy that these magazines, “Opéra Magazine” is published in France and “Ópera Actual” is published in Spain, are two of the most acclaimed opera magazines in the world with thousands of readers and subscribers who are offered a unique and all-encompassing perspective on the international opera scene including the projects of the biggest lyric organizations and the performances of acknowledged soloists.

 

In these particular issues, both magazines specifically refer to Pafos Aphrodite Festival through the reviews of their correspondents who had visited Pafos and attended the performances exactly for this purpose, a fact which proves the international acknowledgement of the institution and the prestige attributed to the Festival in the lyric drama world.
In their reviews, both magazines particularly emphasize the distinctive beauty of the venue, exalting, at the same time, the staging approach of director Paolo Panizza and the exceptional voices of the participating soloists.
