"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
