Szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu writes that the popular online classical music site, Bachtrack, nominated the Hungarian State Opera Choir in the Best Choir competition for their Turandot performance in January. And we won hands down as our our choir scooped 73% of the votes!
Bachtrack’s Jenny Camilleri wrote: “The chorus is, in fact, the motor behind the production’s visually fluidity. Informed by Japanese kabuki theatre, Mr Kovalik has them constantly moving in slick choreography, and while singing superbly to boot.”
Bachtrack chose the six best performances of the 2015-2016 season, out of which the readers picked their favourite. The first category was Best Conductor won by Simon Rattle for Tristan and Isolde in Baden-Baden.
