Press coverage

Jan E. Hansen, date unknown, Aftenposten [Oslo]:
"It has become a strong production, both intimate and monumental in its expression, both sensibly thought and intelligently felt at most levels. And strangely universal in its local coloration."

Hans Rossinés, date unknown, Dagbladet [Oslo]:
"Great Antigone [...] It is an Antigone of musicality, gender versus gender, of human conditions in this world and portals of wholly other trajectories, of modernity in the acting and the coloration, that Thea Stabell has staged in Tromsø."
