"Sara Gartland was utter perfection in the title role, a performance on full throttle from first to last...Her singing was nothing less than radiant throughout. Ms. Gartland possesses a substantial lyric soprano of great beauty and rock solid technique that seems to know no bounds when it comes to alluring sheen, emotional connection, thrilling top notes, vibrant mid-range, floated pianissimi, and well, any and all variations thereof... I would wager there is no one in the world singing this role better than Sara Gartland." - Opera Today (Rusalka)

"...which fielded an exciting breakthrough performance from Sara Gartland in the title role...Gartland displayed a most individual timbre and a considerable reserve of lyric weight in midrange. Her prayer in Act II was ineffable." - Opera News (Jenufa)

"Jonathan Tetelman, fresh from his last minute performance at Tanglewood's "La Boheme" in July - where his Rodolfo was all you could ask for - shined even more here...his voice (at age 28, mind you) promises that this is just the beginning of what may be a great career, and definitely a tenor to pay attention to." - Operawire (Il Duca)

"The real treat, however, came in the Duke sung by the tenor Jonathan Tetelman, memorable as a last-minute replacement for Piotr Beczala in Tanglewood's concert performance of "La Boheme" last month. I was lucky to catch him then, and it was even better seeing him up close in a small theater: The guy's a total star. He provided one of the show's highlights: "La donna e mobile," delivered in a shiny space-cape that would have made David Bowie jealous." - NY Times

"Sunday's matinee was dominated by the remarkable performance of Ethan Simpson as De Rocher...singing with a strong voice and bringing searing dramatic intensity to the role...Ethan Simpson is clearly a gifted artist we will be hearing more from." - Chicago Classical Review

"The most completely realized performance came from Ethan Simpson... As the jealous Count di Luna, he deployed flawless legato in "Il balen del suo sorisso", Luna’s fervent paean to lady-in-waiting Leonora, capping the aria with an exquisite high G that seemed to float in the air for several minutes" - Broadstreet Review
