Reviews & Press

 
 

Glyndebourne Festival - Massenet - Cendrillon - Madame de la Haltière, stepmother of Cendrillon

La grosse voix d’Agnes Zwierko impose une Haltière terrible, dans tous les sens du terme.
 

Anaclase

Agnes Zwierko returns to take the role of the stepmother (she took it in the tour), full of brio and confidence.

Glyndebourne Festival - Massenet - Cendrillon - Madame de la Haltière

The best performances come from Zwierko and Wettergreen. Zwierko, gloriously over-the-top, steals each scene in which she appears.
 

- Tim Ashley , The Guardian

Alongside this beauty and pain is exaggerated comedy. The husky Agnes Zwierko dominates the stage as the peroxide and leopard-print Madame de la Haltière, her Botox-loving, binge-shopping daughters, Noémie (Eduarda Melo) and Dorothée (Kezia Bienek), trotting in her wake.
