  • If I had seen nothing but the stunning Act IV sequence on board the ship headed for Tripoli, where the work of the other designers is joined by eloquent projections from Roberto Vitalini, I would have been able to go home content from the visual splendour.

  • Saariaho's writing works best describing images like the ocean crossing, one of the most brilliant scenes in this production where light images are projected onto waving expanses of silk.

  • From the opening moment where a shock of blue silk floats over the audience's heads to the stage we are in a kind of temporal limbo with psychedelic seascapes ultimately suggesting an eternal divide. What is so wonderful about Finzi Pasca’s work, assisted by Jean Rabasse (set), Kevin Pollard (costumes) and Roberto Vitalini (video), is that it opens up the poetic range of a score that has hitherto seemed overly static.
