The Times
"The late Ken Russell would have loved this show, which contains exuberant nun-shagging and the longest snog that I've seen on the operatic stage." Richard Morrison
Opera Now*****
"This was a hugely entertaining, energetic production, brimming over with youthful enthusiasm. I think Prokofiev would have loved every minute of it." Neil Jones
Financial Times**** 
"What really impressed was Gaitanou's fund of cliché-free ideas, the imagination and discipline with which she applied them, and the energy and exuberance she drew out of everyone - including Prokofiev.” Andrew Clarke
