Wexford commissioned a new production by Israeli director Tomer Zvulun, whose work is excellent. He narrates the story well, starting with the presentation of the characters in the prologue. The trenches are offered vertically in three heights which convey perfectly the difficulty of living in that small space... The stage direction is meticulous in every detail, reflecting Mr. Zvulun’s great knowledge of opera. Strong emotion is present throughout the opera, and the stage direction was an excellent vehicle for it.
