Vereinigte Bühnen Frankfurt, 2007

"A painful loss confronted this Frankfurt production shortly before rehearsals began: the director Anouk Nicklisch, who had planned to further develop her version of this opera formerly presented in Klagenfurt for Frankfurt, died unexpectedly. However, AKS and set designer Roland Aeschlimann managed to realize the intentions of the director convincingly. … Staging took center stage as the gestures, movements and body postures of the soloists yielded an authentic performance of the original concept. … It was in the truest sense of the word, a marvelous evening of opera-theater."
