San Diego Reader Review
"Thierrée... not only makes the stage a wonderland, she owns it."
LA Times Review
"This theater artist earns her astonishment …though a combination of surreal wit and acrobatic grace. Much of the pleasure derives from the mind-boggling logistics of the presentation. Like a magic show, "Aurélia's Oratorio" challenges audiences to figure out its tricks"
"With Aurélia's Oratorio, the La Jolla Playhouse is continuing its grand tradition of classic physical art serving text that brought us treasures such as Bill Irwin, the Flying Karamazov Brothers and Victoria Chaplin."
San Francisco Chronicle Review
"A whimsical feat for all…Part nouvelle circus, part vaudeville of illusions, part fantastical free association…The moment [Aurélia] makes her first appearance—one possibly disconnected hand, foot or leg at a time—she has the audience at her intricately inventive mercy…Oratorio is packed with enough delights for a show twice as long…It's like a Christmas stocking stuffed with one gift after another."
Bay Area News Group Review
"Top-notch family entertainment…Not only is it tremendously well executed, but the various scenes are performed with a tremendous amount of ability and intense engagement with the audience…An effervescent blend of hilarious innovation and old-fashioned knock-your-socks-off entertainment!"
KGO-AM, San Francisco
"A delightful holiday production…A world of wonderment and impossibilities—from illusions, dancing, aerial stunts and puppetry to tricks of physical dexterity…And it's all performed with plenty of great humor while keeping you mesmerized by the cleverness of the talented cast. I've never seen anything quite like it as it combines a bit of circus, magic and comedy in one show and performed at breakneck speed. It's perfect for the whole family, and your little ones will never have an attention deficit—it really moves. Don't miss Aurélia's Oratorio."
