  • Erik Clausen and Andy Pape win in three rounds with their new boxing opera. A delightful show for both children and adults.
    , Berlingske Tidende , 05/03/1995
  • Bang for your buck. A fun and powerful opera. A fresh and vibrant take on the genre incorporating all the elements of classical opera while at the same time poking fun at them.
    **** (4 out of 6 stars)

    , Ekstrabladet, 04/03/1995
  • Boxing set to music until the very last uppercut. And this even in a genuine opera, which is also about love and something as delicate as finding one’s identity.
    , Jyllandsposten, 04/03/1995
  • Clausen og Pape’s Boxing Opera is well worth a visit – with or without children.
    , Politiken , 04/03/1995
  • Cliché and sentimentality can be tremendously invigorating when added humour, subtlety, sassiness – and prejudices about country folk.
    Ole Straarup, Aarhus Stiftstidende, 04/03/1995
