„Nina Kupczyk hat in der Vergangenheit durch eine ganze Reihe überaus gelungener Arbeiten auf sich aufmerksam gemacht, etwa „Der Kaiser von Atlantis“ von Viktor Ullmann. Zuletzt setzte sie sich unter dem hübsch sperrigen Titel „urmozart@amadeus_total.kind.de“ auf faszinierende Weise mit Mozart auseinander. Der Regie-Guru Peter Konwitschny adelte Nina Kupczyk mit der Feststellung: „Sie können Theater entfesseln.“ (Hamburger Abendblatt, April 2013)
