G - "The casting on the whole is successful, with Nero sung by Mireille Delunsch, a choice that is not only musically successful (particularly in duets with Anne Sofie von Otter), but also opens up the interesting dramatic possibility of presenting the Emperor as a spoilt adolescent, incapable of fulfilling his awesome responsibilities." (Gramophone)

"The casting on the whole is successful, with Nero sung by Mireille Delunsch, a choice that is not only musically successful (particularly in duets with Anne Sofie von Otter where dissonances melt exquisitely into unison), but also opens up the interesting dramatic possibility of presenting the Emperor as a spoilt adolescent, incapable of fulfilling his awesome responsibilities. Denis Sedov's youthful appearance belies his pleasantly rich and resonant voice, powerfully effective in its lower registers, while some of the best singing of all comes from Sylvie Brunet, whose account of 'A Dio Roma' beautifully realised, displays an intelligent understanding of the dramatic architecture of one of the high points of the work."
