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.
Oper Frankfurt presents the opera [...]
fulminantEly on stage.
Caterina Panti Liberovici stages this comedy with love.
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.

Humour and good mood: The Italian director
Caterina Panti Liberovici brought the buffo rarity on stage with outlandish humour,
without a trace of clumsiness.
