Reviews

Lulu, A. Berg, Semperoper Dresden, February 2012
"Gisela Stille ist eine eher lyrische Lulu, die ihre stärksten Momenten in höchsten Sopranhöhen entfaltet."

Lulu, A. Berg, Semperoper Dresden, February 2012
"Für die Wahnsinnspartie der Lulu hat Gisela Stille stimmliche Reserven von verblüffender Kraft und besonderer Höhensicherheit."
