• Peter Stein: I Demoni


    Some scenes in I Demoni, Peter Stein's adaptation of Dostoyevsky's novel The Demons, are magnificent, but overall I was underwhelmed.

  • Rechnitz (der Wuergeengel)


    A great performance, which proves the relevance of theatre as an artform.

    A common trend in the performing arts of the past 10 to 15 years is the omission of the interval.

  • Johan Simons: Kasimir und Karoline


    Johan Simons's adaptation of Ödön von Horváth's Kasimir & Karoline is so bad if I didn't already have tickets for some performances during the Holland Festival it would have cured me of my desire to go to the theatre for months to come.

  • Thomas Ostermeier: Die Ehe der Maria Braun


    Die Ehe der Maria Braun proves once more that Thomas Ostermeier is one of today's most interesting directors.
