The harsh loneliness of a human being brings out much stronger emotions than a dear Hoffmann-esque story about mechanical doll and lonely crazy Coppelius.
Leila Guchmazova, "Rossiyskaya Gazeta"
…in the 21st century, the idealistic nonsense of Hoffmann's character seems old-fashioned, and Baganova transforms the story. In her piece, a lively Clara, puppet-like Olimpias, five Nathanaels — all are subjects to Coppelius' will, an evil character in a black trench coat with a mining cap. All people these days are subjects to manipulation, tricked by media, stupefied by common standards and rules. Tatiana Baganova and her team deliver this thought very persistently and convincingly.
