Falstaff - Garsington
But the real secret of this show’s success lies in Ravella’s direction, which scintillatingly mirrors the quicksilver intricacy of the score here brightly rendered by the Philharmonia Orchestra under Richard Farnes’s baton.
— ★★★★★ The Independent
Werther - Opera National de Lorraine
To the refinement of the musical direction responds that of Bruno Ravella in the stage direction... The singers’ direction is refined with specifically a real metamorphosis of the Werther-Charlotte couple, from the carefree almost child like start to the profound desperation with a Charlotte stuck in her marriage and a Werther who has lost his constant smile of the start. The emotion that comes through from this work has its peak in the last scene, totally earth shattering, where pit and scene vibrate in unisson.
