"So much for those shrill scenes with people

- and puppet beings in an abandoned factory numb our eyes and catchy jazz rhythms and harmonic experimentation blind our ears, live through and suffer this great hour of art as if in civilizational paralysis (...) In an excellent ensemble performance of music and puppet theater the Gera-Altenburgers conjure up this puzzling nightmare on stage. "

" Poet. Love! -
or The Poet's Journey "
Schumann Festival Bonn 2018

"A total work of art that has absolutely nothing to do with a recital of the classical style, a concert format that reflects the genre in a new way and puts the apparently well-known in a fertile context." "

"The Misanthrope "
Theater and Philharmonic Thuringia 2018

Kai Anne Schuhmacher has succeeded in creating an aesthetically well-composed staging. Everything appears to be from one piece. Absolutely worth seeing!

Thuringian General

"Sensitively and yet not superficially, the music supports the mood of the actors, underlines scenes and incidents, is included in the plot. A great and extraordinary production that deserves applause."

New Gera

"Hoffmann's Tales" Cologne Opera 2017

"All these magical details of the staging can hardly be adequately appreciated in a verbal description - you just have to see them. Kai Anne Schumacher deserves an extraordinary compliment for her recent work (based on Britten's fascinating interpretation of The Rape of Lucretia)."

theater: pure

"Fantastic trip to dreamland. Kai Anne Schuhmacher staged colorful and original"

Choices Culture Cologne

"In the new, one-hour version, all the important musical highlights of the work can be found and are put in a completely new light in a colorful stage event including the great puppets."

RP Cologne

"The staging, which comes up with strong images, skilfully blends in with political and psychological motifs, also sets striking interpretive accents."

Cologne city gazette

"Atmospherically, the chamber opera" The Rape of Lucretia "is a real gain from the very first picture. Kai Anne Schuhmacher translated" Seas of Tears "into poignant scenes. The audience reacted enthusiastically."

Kölnische Rundschau

"Kai Anne Schuhmacher succeeds in doing something that has become rare in today's staging practice: nuances and in-depth hints that do not always have to have concrete evidence."
