The composer's colourful musical world is represented by three of his works for the string quartet. This music is both tragically intense and grotesquely comic, equally hopeful and desperate, distantly ironic and deeply transfigured. Every one of its notes, just like every movement of the production, reflects the extraordinary contradictions of 20th-century history.
This is "an evening so remarkable as almost to defy description,” wrote The Guardian's reviewer. The Canadian La Press called Opus 2 an "exceptional show in the history of circus... virtually flawless.”
