“Is it worth watching? It most certainly is, because of it’s high level. And quite literally, because the designer duo Clement & Sanôu has created scenography, costumes and light design, which at once is so simple in its entirety and as beautifully alternating between light decadent dark colors and a lot of sky blue.”

“The Dutch set designers Clement & Sanôu works cunningly with the turning stage, that can turn a great center block into murky facades of city-nothing, luxury interior or imprisonment – into anything, that can take us from scene to scene in the opera. Brilliant.”

“It’s done with excess, also in Clement & Sanou clever set design with a large block which turns and opens. And shows us stairs which are popping out and small spaces insight. (…) it’s transparent and exciting – a precious enhancement of the Opera’s repertoire.”
