G.Rossini Guillaume Tell
"Rodula Gaitanou directs in a way that is paradoxically restrained and bold, an attitude that filters into every aspect of the production. It’s a tricky balancing act, executed with great skill. [...]
Gaitanou and Mills have tapped into the work’s magnetic power, and unleashed something truly resonant. "
"an outstanding achievement"
"What will remain with me, however, is the large ensemble and its wonderful cohesion and power conveyed which was at times breathtaking. It is certainly an achievement by Director Rodula Gaitanou to maintain dramatic impact with such a vast cast."
