“When the Finnish National Opera for the first time mounted this seminal work it was in David McVicar’s production, originally created for Chicago Lyric Opera. How far Daniel Ellis’s revival direction deviates from the original I do not know, but it is a taut, intense performance, even more engaging thanks to the wise decision to play it as an integrated unit without intervals. The intensity never lets up. "
- Seen and Heard International (Göran Forsling)
“McVicar's production set up by Daniel Ellis is intelligent and powerful in its impressive detail.”
- Hufvudstadsblade (Jan Granberg)
