“The cast has just one standout: the soprano Kristin Sampson as Minnie. With her bright, throbbing voice, Ms. Sampson brings expressive phrasing and feisty impetuousness to her performance.”
              — Anthony Tommasini, New York Times


“The toughest role to cast is Minnie, but Kristin Sampson seems to be making a specialty of it, with a vigorous feminine presence and a voice hitting one high note after another with breathtaking accuracy.”

— David Patrick Stearns, WQXR’s Operavore
