Media coverage of the opera buffa La Serva Padrona:

«The theatre has made a step forward. The festivals and unexpected “small stages” are coming to life. This time White (so called ‘tsar’s’) staircase has served both as a stage and a set. The musicians were on its upper landing; they were also acting as extras. 100 happy spectators found their seats around the staircase at the bottom».

«This performance is the one in the series of experimental works. It continues the theatrical tradition called "audience on stage" and gets back to life an old good routine of "home performances", which was a refined aristocratic custom of salons and small local theaters", a journalist Valentina Levchuk writes about the performance La Serva Padrona».
