Julia Jones’s performances of Don Giovanni with Nederlandse Reisopera have impressed the critics:
”[Julia Jones] conducted the Orkest van het Oosten, brass sounding particularly heady, in a very assured performance with mainly brisk tempi to match the exuberance on stage.” Nicolas Nguyen, Bachtrack
“The singers were more than deservingly assisted by the Orkest van het Oosten, which was directed by Julia Jones, a seasoned Don Giovanni conductor. She kept up the momentum in the orchestra ... and the interaction with the singers was excellent.” Merlijn Kerkhof, Volkskrant ****
“Under the baton of Julia Jones, Orkest van het Oosten plays exciting, tightly controlled Mozart.” Laura Rolin, Place de l’Opera
“an overall excellent and attentive performance, including some magical moments” Mischa Spel, NRC ****
Following her final performance on 1 April, Julia will travel to Seattle, where she makes her house debut conducting The Magic Flute.
