  • 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
  • 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
  • A sweepingly elegant piece of musical drama.
    Eva Hvidt
