“…Controversial Ferenc Anger directs “The Rake’s Progress” where the highlight is Australian soprano Eleanor Lyons, who starred as fragile as-crystal Mimi in Hungarian State Opera’s strikingly beautiful Christmas run of “La bohème”. It is worth attending “The Rake’s Progress” just to hear this captivating singer.”
Kiara Argenta, Budapest Times 1 April 2016
