About the production

Certain key assessments of Ingmar Bergman's directorial style and approach now began to crystallize in the local reviews, which reffered to his 'inventiveness' and 'shocking unconventionality'.

In a programme note Bergman thanked the public for its 'patience with our youth, indulgence vis-à-vis our capers and recognition of our good will and our genuine intent'.
