Verdi "Un ballo in maschera"
" Conductor Sonia Ben-Santamaria drew notably fine playing from the City of London Sinfonia orchestra - the arching violin lines of the Act 2 prelude linger in the memori - and articulated multifaced opera with an acute sense for both structure and dtame. SBS even succeeded in aking the abrupt eclamations of "Notte d'orror" and wham-bam final bars, so often bathetic after the sublime ensemble that preceded them sound like more than an applause-cadging gesture."
Art Muse London
" Conductor Sonia Ben-Santamaria also from Opera Holland Park young artist scheme did a fine job of directingthe City of London Sinfonia orchestra in what is fiendishly difficult opera to conduct with its fast tempi, quintets and intricate arrangements (...) beautifully fluid interpretation of one of Verdi's most ravishing score."
