 Probably the best opera of the 21st century so far July 4, 2014 By Weston Williams (Birmingham, AL) See All My Reviews "This opera is astoundingly original, challenging, and relevant--just the kind of thing opera should be. I feel comfortable in calling it the best opera of the 21st century I've heard so far. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
