“The [performance] is sustained in particular by Vera-Lotte Boecker. Not only because she moves confidently in even the most remote soprano regions: with unconditionality, with a will (always vocally controlled) to relinquish, she makes her Nadja into the descendant of all Salomes, Elektras or Iphigenies – and that is not the case due solely to this piece, in which a great past tragedy echoes.” Markus Thiel, Münchener Merkur
“… the conclusion is the heartrending ‘Lamento della Ninfa’. Prior to that, leading lady Vera-Lotte Boecker shaped the constant switch between reality and traumatic memory for two hours with thrilling intensity. Now she is left behind as a destroyed character, incapable forever of love.” Max Nyffeler, FAZ
“Haas’s corresponding orchestral musical language with microintervals, quarter-tones, overtone series made to vibrate and oscillate interweaves, often in a wonderful way, with sometimes lurkingly grotesque, sometimes intensive, ‘pure’ cantilenas of pain that Vera-Lotte Boecker, as Nadja, makes smolder. The way she sings some high notes with a melting pain just as sensual as it is powerful – is phenomenal.” Jörn Florian Fuchs, Bayerischer Rundfunk
“The stupendous accomplishment of soprano Vera-Lotte Boecker, always present, never shrill or overextended, who mastered the balancing act of her role as if sleepwalking under the adept conducting of Titus Engel, rounds off a delightful evening intended to seduce one to reflection.” Sabine Busch-Frank, Donaukurier
“I pay tribute to the performance of soprano Vera-Lotte Boecker, who sings, feels, disintegrates, plays Nadja, blowing up her psyche. Only to some extent can I imagine (I would be glad to avoid more) how martially undermining working on the role and acquiring it must have been. An attack on the singer’s personal ego. Her singing is a two-hour exceptional state.” Frank Heublein, Klassik begeistert
