Dominik Troger, Online Merker
«..Around Aikin are her colleagues, who differ either by soundly or impulsive performance and whose roles were accurately determined by Stein. Unbeatable in every respect was Wolfgang Bankl as a lawyer Kolenaty, solid were Markus Marquardt (as Jaroslav Prus) and Ludovit Ludga (as Albert Gregor). Funny and awkward on stage was Carlos Osuna (as Janek Prus), but above all, it is worth to mark an exquisite voice and performance of Margarita Gritskova as Christa.»
Ljubiša Tošić "Der Standart", 14.12.2015.
«..Krista performed by Margarita Gritskova admiringly looks at her ideal, before she comes to despair because of her lover having committed suicide.»

«..Wolfgang Bankl presented to the public a memorable lawyer Kolenaty and Margarita Gritskova created a very expressive Krista.»
Gert Korentschnig, "Courier", 14.12.2015
«..Thomas Ebenstein made from a clerk of the lawyer Kolenaty quite a comic character, and Kolenaty’s daughter, Krista, who worships Marty and who eventually gets her recipe for eternal youth, later committed by her to fire, is convincingly performed by mezzo-soprano Margarita Gritskova.»
Oliver Schneider, DrehPunktKultur

Joachim Lange, NMZ Online, 16.12.2015
