hannigan lulu

"Pour sa première Lulu, Barbara Hannigan entre aussitôt dans l'histoire: non seulement parce qu'elle danse sur les pointes et habite son rôle par tous les pores de la peau, mais parce qu'elle le chante avec une aisance, une virtuosité et des couleurs qu'on ne connaît à aucune autre aujourd'hui. Cette femme doit venir d'une autre planète."
Christian Merlin, Le Figaro, October 23, 2012

Die Welt:
"But they are all outshone by Barbara Hannigan as Marie: a suffering Madonna of devotion, with glistening young girls tones and melting legato. Twelve-tone-Belcanto is her bewitching Art."

Süddeutsche Zeitung:
"Hannigan is always brought in when it comes to making the trickiest modern music sound so natural and attractive that everyone thinks in the auditorium: I can do that. Her light and lyrical voice seem to set no limits in that realm. But Hannigan also has a maelstrom of stage presence, and she is a gorgeous actress who effortlessly creates the animated and puppet-like contortions that the director Andreas Kriegenburg demanded on this memorable evening. With all this, she is a very, very great stroke of luck in the opera business."
