On Sunday, Tomáš Hanus conducted Welsh National Opera’s opening night of Der Rosenkavalier at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
“Highly wrought and allusive, ostentatiously sophisticated and brilliant, the score presents a huge challenge that WNO’s new Music Director Tomás Hanus meets with remarkable flair and confidence. He and his terrific orchestra don’t miss a trick in a reading that is sumptuous and expansive as well as vivacious and witty.” – The Telegraph
“Richard Strauss’s Viennese excess sounded fabulous, and no one contributed more to its glory than Welsh National Opera’s new music director, Tomáš Hanus, in his first full outing for the company. The young Czech conductor wove a rich tapestry of confections from the extravagant score in a reading of delicate tenutos, sensitive tempo choices and impeccable orchestral playing.” – WhatsOnStage
