Wexford Festival Opera
"Director Fabio Ceresa’s ironic approach to the opera’s ridiculous plot was terrifically effective; Ceresa brought a novel, comedic element to this opera. He also did a magnificent job of minimising the potential for gore by narrating the majority of the deaths through puppets often to wickedly humorous effect."
"The Wexford Festival’s intricate, handsome-looking production, directed by Fabio Ceresa, presents the action in a giant doll’s house. t’s a production which is at all times visually absorbing, and the convolutions of the plot are conveyed with commendable lucidity.
"Thanks to a fascinating concept and fine elaborated realisation by director Fabio Ceresa the clumsy composition is fresh up, faces a logical order and is not short of cynical and some comic injections."
