”Hakan Starkenberg gives a very vivid performance using his whole body - his face grimaces in frustra- tion as he tries to make himself understood...” ”The era is beautifully captured throughout the opera in both refe- rences to contemporary medical science and in the music hall genre. Unander-Scharin’s music is melodic and aptly, a distillate of the moods and events taking place in the libretto.”
