The singers and the orchestra were most convincing, masterfully conducted by Patrik Ringborg. ... The soundtrack created by general music director Patrik Ringborg and the State Orchestra is at least as impressive as the action on stage. Rhythmically exceedingly succinct, polychromatic and sch äußerst prägnant, vielfarbig and now and again in (dynamically) controlled ecstasy the orchestra moves the story forward, even leaving an ear worm behind with the famous march theme. Warren-hearted acclaim in the sold-out opera house.
