Great reviews of “Aurora” with Bury Court Opera!

“The music reaches new and insistent levels of exuberance, with the countertenor Mountain Witch (the fearless Jean-Max Lattemann) punching away at lines that could have been written for a dramatic mezzo.”

Yehuda Shapiro, Opera Magazine, May 2019

“The countertenor (…) Jean-Max Lattemann excels as the Mountain Witch, with one of the entrances (…) sending the same chill down the spine as the final appearance of the Commendatore is capable of doing.”

“A second counter-tenor, Jean-Max Lattemann, played the Mountain Witch, a character somewhat the opposite of Deus Ex Machina, as she brought pain and punishment on Aurora. Lattemann made the most of the theatricality of his scene, using the breaks in his voice to striking dramatic effect.”
