Confusing, Disappointing, Dated

See it if You are interested in exploring the idea that hell is other people.

Don't see it if You expect it to be a real mix of opera and theater. Singing was at the beginning and end. It was basically a regular play, nothing new. Read more

Ambitious, Great acting, Edgy, Intense, Confusing

See it if You want a new spin on a classic which adds arias to the text, here in English. The actors, on a minamilist set draw us into their hell.

Don't see it if 2 hours of psycho-philosophical dialogue on a bare stage would bore you. Wish there were translations of the arias so I knew how they tie in
