Stage Director Alexander Petrov is a man of cheerful, positive disposition. He has refrained from imbuing this opera buffa with, for example, psychoanalytical motifs of a complete travesty, as many “fashionable” colleagues would have done in his place, he has made it a simple though inventive production, meticulously but with great joy.

The lively and witty production staged by Alexander Petrov lent itself to being seen “in one breath” and drew a warm response from the audience. The merry, classical production of the opera brings to mind all Salzburg performances together (there are “quotations” now from one, now from another). While, at the same time, this quoting from acclaimed productions appears appropriate and unobtrusive. And the performers of the leading roles feel comfortable in the labyrinth of sets and create convincing images.
