“In the production… there is no politics… there israther politics of the soul, as the characters look primarily like people with a hint of physical and spiritual weakness.”

Vechernyaya Moskvanewspaper, 27 November 1998

“The authors of the production did the impossible. They turned the close stage space into a powerful historical canvas, with meagre strokes achieving the feeling that is comparable to what we experiencedwhen watching Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible.”

Izvestia newspaper, 30 October 1998

“The Novaya Opera choir, the joy of Moscow music lovers, turns more and more often from the background and context to the main character of the performance… Yes, these people are not silent and do not stand mournfully or exultantly in the openings between set designer Kochergin’sarchs. They rush about, rage, pray, mourn, suffer, joke, comment – in a word, they live.”
