“Odyssey’s journey into German myth via Giraudoux melts the boundaries between drama, music, dance and visual art… the overwhelming impression is of a multi-dimensional richness.”
Iris Winston, Ottawa Citizen

“Once again, director Laurie Steven uses the fantastic in the service of reality… a unique blend of Commedia dell’Arte, dance and spectacle… Odyssey has gelled into something special… Ondine is a fun, thought-provoking time which appeals to all of the senses.”
S. Mistal Baker, Ottawa X-Press

“It’s beautiful, absolutely beautiful… go and see Ondine, it’s a wonderful experience.”
Alvina Ruprecht, CBC Radio

“Odyssey is equally dynamic in its experimentation and explorations of theatrical forms and space [as Robert Lepage]… fast-paced action, dozens of… idiosyncratic characters, spectacularly colourful masks and costumes and a live soundtrack… Ondine is a poetic, provocative production and a great night at the theatre.”
Tom McSorley, CBC Radio
