...Conducted by MarkusBieringer, the eight-headed orchestra brilliantly mastered the complexly structured, multifaceted and rhythmically highly versatile score with brilliance.[...] As the frivolous game of cat-and-mouse for greed an power, sex and violence, the music by Camille Kerger under the admirable conducting of Markus Bieringer is alike: playful and cheeky, piercing and colorful.“

[...]A stroke of luck is the conductor MarkusBieringer. For two years the first Kapellmeister and deputy chief conductor at the Pfalztheater, the young artist achieved a soundwise exhilarating result with his orchestra. He focused on an impulsive, dynamic and leanly elaborated orchestra sound with sparkling cembalo, banging timpani and thrilling brass.“

[…] Thanks to the splendid orchestra under the direction of the conductor Markus Bieringer, the premiere in Kaiserslautern turned out to be an exciting plea for the rarely played opera composer Gluck.[…]In the elevated orchestra pit, the short-staffed orchestra succeeded in achieving a historically informed, vibratoless Gluck sound, which came very close_ to the ideal of plain classical beauty. Not only by very sportive tempi did Bieringer care for an energized tension, which led to an exciting opera performance.”

[…]The very successfully debuting deputy chief conductor mobilized the last tonal reserves of the orchestra with music from the soundtrack to „Star Wars“ by John Williams without becoming too bold or pithy. At this place, a laudation for him is due anyway: Markus Bieringer conducted on a grand scale, sovereign, nonchalant and with overview. He belongs to those conductors who have the score in their head – and not vice versa[…]”

[…]But musically the performance has its great merits. This was proved by Markus Bieringer standing unexpectedly on the podium of the Badische Staatskapelle to put his remarkable vital stamp on the evening. The young conductor, who graduated his conducting studies at the University of music in Karlsruhe, brought out the strong main points by a dedicated access to the score. Skilfully he avoided the traps of incompatible sweetness and sound bombast. He was an attentive accompanist and a sensible initiator to the singers and the well-prepared choir, he kept up the vibrating tension between lyric emphasis and passionate pathos three hours long and succeeded in making a sustainable listening experience of the big ballet scene in the third act by the colorful and prudently nuanced sound[…]”
