“The director succeeds in making a convincing staging out of this demanding music and a not really accesible text. (...) The staging allows the three Marías, a kind of female trinity, to always merge, overlap, unite, alternate, often in quiet, slow dance-like gestures. Everything is simultaneous, María's birth and her death, hope and despair, life and death, pleasure and pain. With the synchronicity, with the simultaneity of the non-simultaneous of the different periods and situations of life, a philosophical-mystical concept is transformed into an exciting theatrical plot. Also in the sense that many scenes seem like dreams that cast a spell over the viewers.” St. Galler Tagblatt, May 8th, 2022.
