«Wherlock’s half-hour choreography begins with an impressive silent scene. Miyuki Sato steps into the red light semi-circle in a long red cloak to sparse bell ringing«. Alfred Ziltener – Basellandschaftliche Zeitung, 1.10.2007

«Richard Wherlock’s half-hour ballet «Verdi Code», which premiers tonight, is permeated by the theatrical side of Catholicism. Dramatic red and black dominate as colours». — Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 1.10.2007
