With a great interest from both the audience of Jutland and a large number of Danish as well as international music journalists and editors, SCENATET took the stage at the SPOR festival with Niels Rønsholdt's appraised opera experiment, Gaze for Gaze. Together with a new choir and new performers from Denmark and abroad, SCENATET led the curious and anticipatory audience into Rønsholdt's love-blown darkness with great conviction and musical integrity.
Among others, the music magazine Seismograf and the theatre blog ISCENE took place in the enthusiastic circle of the audience, from which the sensual power of the opera could really be felt:
"The senses were at stake and in the utmost preparedness. Just like in the first act, where you constantly waited with much tension for a hand on your shoulder. It was surely not pleasant all the way through, maybe quite as it feels to be in the complicated love relationship the opera was about? (ISCENE, 16.05.18)"
