"... new staging of Verdi’s gloomy masterpiece as near to perfection as you could hope."
The Times, 3/10/1994


"... a seriously brilliant new production... an international hit."
The Guardian, 3/10/1994


"... 'Triumph over the absurd'... Inga Levant cleans the story up, smoothing out the messy details of unseen events and binding the whole thing together with recurring motifs of fire... much as Verdi’s score does."
The Independent on Sunday, 9/10/1994
