Critics reviews

This fragile mosaic of emotions is reserved for rose-coloured spectators. What had the Vienna of 1900 to do with the masked darkness of Marivaux? With décors which are unashamedly so, with a waltz melody likely to break hearts and (maybe) become the rage, one suddenly feels that the Viennese were not wrong.
