From the press
"Much of the work is very impressive and much of the performance by the singer-actors is very enjoyable. The eye is afforded generous compensation and the music is given the respect due to it. In the second half of the production Avi Yona Buenso's lighting is revealed in all its splendor. He not only creates twinkling scenes of plenty, he usus light to sculpt a magical atmosphere." (Michael Handelzalts, Haaretz)
