"Of course, he doesn’t do it alone – he chooses who to work with in a very purposeful way. With his excellent orchestra, conductor Marko Ivanović makes a reliable partner. Tomáš Rusín, one of our best stage designers, and his wife Zuzana Štefunková-Rusínová provide a perfectly compatible visual form for L’amour de loin along with Heřman’s regular collaborator, lighting designer Daniel Tesař," writes Olga Janáčková.
95% for L’amour de loin
Olga Janáčková, a reviewer for the Opera Plus website, highly rates the Czech premiere of L’amour de loin (24 March 2017). "Jiří Heřman is a director who always goes deeply into the work he is interpreting, lives with it, discovers its essence, analyzes it in detail and then comes up with a staging that is crystallized in form," writes Olga Janáčková in her review.
