Comment from Joyce Gessler

I was disappointed in the staging of the opera. In my head the Snow Maiden was dressed in white, and living in a forest, not in tatty jeans in a sewing factory. I didn't feel the cold in this production, nor feel the threat of the sun. I found the production lacking in contrasts and a sense of narrative. Not the fairytale I had expected.
