‘It sounded beautiful and looked beautiful; the masks, the puppets, the lighting, the costumes, the projections turned Richardson into a magical, mythic space, where anything seemed possible…There were so many beautiful touches in the staging; the death of Eurydice was particularly sensitive to the libretto; the ways in which motion and stasis were held in balance—swirls of activity and moments of deep introspection. The simple elegance of the end matched the music in its spiritual concentration’

Wendy Heller, Scheide Professor of Music History and Chair, Department of Music, Princeton University
