Love and Other Demons at Glyndebourne

Geoff Brown [Times Online, 12 August 2008]

I liked the stage direction “All hell breaks loose”. Perfect for a convent exorcism – the climactic event in this new opera, unveiled before a gourmet audience who would have probably preferred to be eating Mozart. But where was Hell exactly? I saw nuns in a polite flap, a little writhing, smeared blood: a tea party compared with the Exorcist films. Silviu Purcarete’s production of this imaginative but uneven opera by Peter Eötvös is troublingly cool, tasteful and careful.
