"Thomalla's score is always on the move to the next sound-world, to the next change of style; and yet the back-beat of the 90-minute evening is a lament-like, speech-oriented English vocal ductus, that nonetheless allows for astonishing Puccini lyricisms.[...] All in all, a compact, unerringly composed and masterfully staged evening."
