Praise for the Work

"The ambiguity of evil and good, of this world and the next, of the everyday world and the spiritual world does not come into play in the dance. It is only realized by Anna Fleischle's magnificent stage, which uses a few props such as desks, chairs, window frames and video projections to evoke an oscillation between worlds, reinforced by Mark Henderson's sophisticated lighting direction." Bachtrack

"... the lightly shiny black top cape of Florian Modan's interpretation of the Spirit of Christmas to Come literally vibrates to the rhythm of Beamish's music, which moves between horror and Christmas joy. Mark Henderson's lighting and Fleischle's stylish sets and video projections give the work its own subtle magic." Helsingin Sanomat
