“It was the best Rossini the Greek National Opera has ever produced”
– Yiannis Svolos, Efimerida ton Syntakton

“Cenerentola is a triumph, not only artistic but intellectual as well. The director Rodula Gaitanou gave us a production full of thoughtful and emotional pleasure. Nobody could find a flaw in this well refined world, presenting Cenerentola in the 1930s.” – Nikos Vatopoulos, Kathimerini

“For the rest, very pleasing and rich coloristic and narrative flair are the scenes and lighting by Simon Corder…” – Roberto Calogiuri,

“A triumphant Rossini’s Cinderella at the Verdi in Trieste… The non-beautiful scenes of Simon Corder perhaps tend to excessive gloom but are functional to the directorial design.” Paolo Locatelli –

“… unusual and eye-catching proposal scenic played on more levels and more plans, designed by international scenographer Simon Corder.” – Monica Ferri,

“The sets and the lights are simple, pleasant and well made by Simon Corder…” – Paolo Bullo,
