"the insight into Shostakovich's strange and contradictory world is
nothing short of genius" The Guardian

"a fully thought-out production, brilliantly inventive, full of
fantastical touches, sung with absolute assurance and acted with a verve
reminiscent of Theatre de Complicite – it's incredibly rare to see
ensemble work of this level in theatre, let alone opera with virtuoso
singing included. This was a rare and wonderful visit to the exuberant,
ominous theatre of Meyerhold and Mayakovsky. As Gogol's baffled narrator
says: 'Say what you like, but such things do happen; rarely perhaps, but
they happen all the same.' But not often on the London stage" The Times
