G. F. Handel: Giulio Cesare (Internationale Händel Festspiele-Goettingen)
13/5-22/5 Deutsches Theater-Göttingen
"What distinguishes Petrous' music-making with the extraordinarily supple festival orchestra can also be experienced on stage: courageous approach, balance of attention to detail and wide breath, and finally the desire for stylistic freedom."
"Petrou knows how to heighten the dramatic tension and the cleverly dosed comedy never evades the emotion"
"George Petrou knows how to increase the dramatic tension in his production and to intersperse comedic moments in a skilfully dosed manner."
