Review
ROMEO & JULIETTE
Herning Folkeblad
The main characters was sympathetically and believably casted with Sibylle Glosted and Rasmus Gravers Nielsen, who embodied the impossible, suffering love with the fatal outcome.
DIE WEISS ROSE
…Berdal's fingerprints are in the two actors' fears, their waiting, their joy over the memories and parting with their parents. It is touchingly felt, well executed and complete and the finest feature of the set-up at all.
DIE WEISS ROSE
Ascolta Magasin
…Glosted and Hedegaard both sing excellently and are vocally as present as they are scenically.
DIE WEISS ROSE
Fyns Stiftstidende
…As the opera progresses, Sophie Scholl's character becomes more and more Ophelia-like, and it is in the completely fragile, slightly insane moments that Sibylle Glosted shines.
