"Opera Kiel presents Verdi's late masterpiece in a conclusive and unusual concept… Nightmare-like images and insane visions, reality and fantasies…psychological interpretation… psychodellically gleaming flowers… surrealistic costumes… A long, respectful silence between the orchestra's last tone and the enthusiastic applause of the audience are proof for a more than successful production."

"In her perfectly original interpretation Inga Levant shows how far a production can go without violating the piece.
(…) Ovations from an enthusiastic premiere's audience."
Schleswig-Holsteinische Landeszeitung, 22. Juni 2004
