In a production praised for being “of European ranking,“ critics called Lillian’s choreography “hypnotically beautiful.” The singers move in swarms, magnify small gestures and collect into breathing masses to echo and expand the deep emotions of the protagonists in synch with Monteverdi’s unforgettable harmonies.
