Reviews

“The result of Verdi’s masterpiece (La Traviata) was excellent, staged at the Swedish National Opera: Milletarì manages to sensitively accompany singers without reducing the orchestra to a mere supporting actor. Quite the opposite: it obtains powerful and refined colours from the instruments, takes great care of the beauty of the sound, always shiny and clean, gives the narration a swift and theatrically effective pace.”
Fabio Larovere

Corriere della Sera

“In the orchestra pit Vincenzo Milletarì leads with skill and authority, he controls the eminent Royal Danish Orchestra with great insight, and he constantly follows the singers on stage and the Lyngbo’s versatile regie.2

Arsartis

“The conductor Vincenzo Milletarì was the absolute highlight and totally in control in front of the orchestra.”
