- Lisa Hirsch, Chicago Classical Review. Sunk by the libretto and insufficiently varied music.
- Opera Tattler
- Richard Scheinin, Mercury News. Rich describes the musical issues in more detail than I did. I think the libretto causes many of the problems, but he's right on.
- Joshua Kosman, Chron, likes it better than Rich and I did, finding the music more appealing and the libretto less of a problem.
- Janos Gereben, SFCV, who is equivocal
