Königskinder returned to the Tiroler Festspiele Erl in summer 2023, cementing its position as a critical and audience favourite: according to Der Standard, "The Erl Festival delights with Engelbert Humperdinck's opera Königskinder  ... Matthew Wild's production brings the fairytale events in Erl into the present without robbing it of its poetry."

Wild's production of Handel's Alcina for Cape Town Opera recently played to standing ovations and critical praise in Cape Town: "an evening of refined pleasures to savour both immediately and in retrospect ... Deft imaginative direction .... with much to delight eye and ear, as well as stimulate the mind." (Weekend Special).
