“A heroic job... giving the complex action, including the battle of Stalingrad, a miraculous fluidity.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“It's remarkable how much of the spirit of the 850-page novel that visionary director Lev Dodin succeeds in capturing on stage.”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“An earthy and raw vibe... Paints a memorable picture of the struggles of war.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“Maly Drama Theatre’s superlative ensemble brings Vasily Grossman’s harrowing Soviet-era epic to vivid life on stage.”

Dave Hollander (The Stage)

“You need patience to work out who's who... but the pay-off is tremendous, and the acting seizes you from the start.”

David Nice (Arts Desk)

“Extraordinarily powerful 2007 stage adaptation... Kuryshev gives a masterly performance.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“A gripping atmosphere of fevered uncertainty – of abrupt and arbitrary reversals of fate – is beautifully relayed.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Captures a sense of life’s fragility and preciousness. Dodin rigorously marshals a committed ensemble.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)
