Tampere Theatre Festival 2016:
“The Grimm Book of Horrors is music theatre of beauty and terror. It opens new doors to the Grimm chamber of horrors – a twisted reality where princesses howl to the moon and where your glance at a mirror is met with the grimace of a wolf.
The piece is based on six Brothers Grimm stories, such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Willful Child, and excerpts from Mikko Koivusalo’s libretto for Prinsessaooppera. The visually strong work is filled with original music combined with theatre and dance.
There are four charismatic performers, three top musicians and a chorus of seven pitch black teen angels onstage.
Captivating, ominous storytelling.”
