Danish music magazine Custos gives a nice review of the Via Artis opera Escarramán in the June 2016 issue:

… the ten tableaus weave together splendid Spanish baroque arias, rousing popular tunes, recitatives, dance and light-hearted acting whimsies, reminiscent of commedia dell'arte.
… a rare mix of high art, humour and frolic, altogether avoiding dissociating irony ...

or how about:
… the magnificent individuality in both range and style of the singers is vital. Elegiac and dramatic Marta Infante, brillant Maria Altadill [...] and the charismatic flamenco dancer Julie Andkjær Olsen ...

The film is subtitled in English, Español og Dansk!
