DIDO DIDO in Operadagen at Rotterdam Schouwburg

from: Artist Talk Magazine, 26 mei 2018, Michael Hasted

"Nicole Beutler’s Dido Dido with the experimental opera company Silbersee and co-producers the Ulrike Quade Company proves emphatically that a little can go a very long way. Using only Henry Purcell’s twenty-nine word, two stanza aria from his opera Dido and Aeneas, repeated in various forms ad infinitum, the ensemble weaves a mesmerizing web of intricate and complex patterns."

"Beautifully staged with an elegant simplicity, Dido Dido was one of the best things I have seen in Operadagen so far, proving that less can indeed be much much more and that finally there was no trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast. Excellent."
