Until just before the premiere on September 19th, Gefors has worked on details together with Patrik Ringborg, music director of the Kassel Opera and a permanent guest conductor in Gothenburg, to optimize the (dynamic) balance between orchestra, chorus and soloists. The result: an appealing, varied, sophisticated, efficiently built music for the (Guckkasten-)stage. ... Patrik Ringborg knew already in 2011, that he would conduct the series of twelve (!) performances after the world premiere. The staying power paid off: Whether guest soloists or choir and orchestra of the opera house, whether the British staging team or the stage crew - all pulled together and proved, that also a «conventional» (film-)opera, following the tradition of the genre with arias, duets and ensembles, can enrich the repertoire. At least, when it presented in a musical drama so allusive, tongue in cheek, individually tinted as in Gothenburg.
