“Not to be missed.” – NZ Herald

"NZ Opera’s latest production is a feast for the eyes and the ears. Spectacular staging and costuming along with powerful singing made for a grand night of opera." – RNZ Concert

"...they pull at every heart string and leave the night invigorated by their ode to love and beauty." - Good Magazine

"Gorgeously atmospheric and completely engrossing, this is a triumphant performance that cannot be missed." – Ambient Light

"A breath taking, heartfelt love story that takes the singing levels of opera that dreams are made of and leaves me wanting more. There’s something about the NZ Opera and the quality of their productions that never ceases to amaze me." - Libel

"Yes, this is good entertainment – an opera that celebrates art over life's struggles, and friendship over misfortune – irrespective of money. The chorus is snappy, the principals are energised, the orchestra is superb." – Theatreview
