An opera which powerfully heightens its prison story with restraint and simplicity. I can imagine it being spine-chillingly effective in a simple staging.
Michael Olivier, Gramophone,01/10/2001
A wonderful, yet disturbing, opera that hopefully will be staged again soon.
David Hackbridge Johnson, Classical Music Web,01/10/2001
High and lowbrow culture meet in this work which puts on display the anguished soul of a dethroned queen.
Not only does Andy Pape serve up a mesh of musical styles, he also manages to elegantly combine classic opera with the ballad-genre. **** (4 out of 6 stars)
Carl Skøtt, Nordjyske Stiftstidende,14/06/2001
This is opera for everybody. **** (4 out of 6 stars)
Gregers Dirckinck-Holmfeld, Ekstra Bladet ,30/03/1999
A psychological drama of the kind Benjamin Britten was so adept at in his best operas. All in all, this is a tremendous achievement.
Guy Rickards, Tempo,01/01/0001
Dramatic, however also surprisingly humorous. Once again, Andy Pape has managed to combine high and lowbrow aesthetics – and the result is not too shabby. **** (4 out of 5 stars)
Lilo Sørensen, ,01/01/0001
A sweepingly elegant piece of musical drama.
Eva Hvidt, ,01/01/0001
