/…/ The novel’s rich tapestry of the novel is brought alive by a musical score that rewards repeated listening.
Kerri Kotta, Sirp newspaper

This is a really cool play. One where it doesn’t really feel like a standing ovation but you can hurt your hands clapping. Kivirähk’s novel is a cult masterwork of Estonian literature and the opera can be no worse. Now we have a film based on the novel as well and who knows, perhaps someonw will develop a video game as well.
Siim Saavik, 4Dimensioon

The opera is like life itself, only even more colourful. It’s about us - as we were yesterday, and are today and will be tomorrow. While the production is undoubtedly contains profound ideas, it’s not the kind of deep thoughts that one can point to sand say definitively, “the writer is trying to tell us that …” Is there self-irony? Is there ever. The story is about Old Barny, a.k.a. a barn-keeper by the name of Sander, who witnesses the greed for profit of his people and their big dreams and smaller aspirations, trying to nudge them from their sly pragmatism towards more human spheres.
