by Jan Muller-Wieland
"The staging is lavish speedy and turbulent. The theatre engaged a specialist of the black British humour who plunged without brakes with drastic strength."
"That all the slapstick and very funny moments not only did not distract but seemed so assured, was a brilliant catalyst for the intellectually coherent yet crazy stage imagery."
"... this spirit of violence is supremely well dealt with."
"The production of the well-known Jonathan Moore was always brilliant."
"Theatrically everything was very well assured. Everything so dramatically strange and successfully prepared. Wonderfully gruesome... The mixture of opera and riots was a tortured example of how much comedy there can be in good old opera when she throws off her solemn heritage..."
