Director Caterina Panti Liberovici succeeded

in making the piece more interesting than it in fact is,

by mixing the levels of reality,

as the set resembled an auditorium,

the singers themselves became viewers,

taking on and giving up roles,

because the maestro Don Bucefalo in a manner imagines the opera, thereby creating the characters.

 Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung Heidelberg

 

Oper Frankfurt presents the opera [...]

fulminantEly on stage.

 Fuldaer Zeitung

 

Caterina Panti Liberovici stages this comedy with love.

 BILD-Zeitung

 

Caterina Panti Liberovici avoids staging a gag-theater, but instead a sublime comedy for connoisseurs,

which does not conceal a true feature

of the opera business,

the often cruel game of playing with feelings.

 Frankfurter Neue Presse

 

Humour and good mood: The Italian director

Caterina Panti Liberovici brought the buffo rarity on stage with outlandish humour,

without a trace of clumsiness.
