"Of the many opera-on-a-shoestring productions I have seen in recent years, this version of Massenet's romantic tragedy ranks as one of the more stylish and imaginative." 

Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph

"Bozok's modern and minimalist production of Werther is breathlessly romantic, and searing in its intensity... Bozok's vision is accordingly luxurious, plaintive and dark."

**** 4 stars Bachtrack

 "Bozok's account is a revelation. Stylistically her work echoes the Shared Experience school of expressionism, using simple physicality and unflashy visual clues to flesh out the characters' hinterland... By the end of the opera a woman next to me was in floods of tears."

"Aylin Bozok's precise and probing production... Pelléas formed the centrepiece of the Grimeborn Festival 2013"

Opera Magazine 

"[Pelléas et Mélisande] directed by Aylin Bozok, is a masterclass in restrained intensity"

***** 5 stars OneStopArts

"Aylin Bozok understands Pelléas et Mélisande better than most directors who've tackled its mysteries... the production is rich in its own moments of enigma... It's a production full of such simple, carefully-considered points of interpretation."

"[Pelléas et Mélisande] is not a simple work but you won't see it done more persuasively than in Aylin Bozok's production"
