    BEAUTIFUL REVIEWS FOR 'THE OTHER'

    NRC, Theaterkrant, Leeuwarder Courant and Place de l'Opera, among others, reviewed The Other.

    “The opera plays very cinematically with flashbacks, mutual deception and with dreams of Friesland as a safe place and even fragments of Frisian in the libretto. Filming opera is a laborious endeavor: the theatricality of a stage performance quickly clashes with the more intimate character of film. The Others has found a very good compromise.” (Leeuwarder Courant)
