De Amerikaanse pers blijft Pierre Audi’s productie van ‘Guillaume Tell’ in de Metropolitan Opera van New York ook na de première zeer kritisch beoordelen:


“It’s as if whenever Audi was puzzled about how to handle a dramatic challenge, he simply went online and ordered up another moving part. That sort of interpretive laziness does not bode well for the Park Avenue Armory, where he is now artistic director.”

Parterre Box:

“While it was wonderful to hear the brilliant score, performed by an impressive cast and orchestra, thoughtless direction stifled the epic drama […] the staging caused the drama to lurch slowly forward, sluggish and hollow. In this sense, the evening felt interminable”
