Notes and Editorial Reviews

"All in all, this Firefly is delightful, a lovely souvenir of a vanished but still vibrant era, and you will want this glittering insect hovering near your CD player." (American Record Guide)

"We need a spectacular Firefly and boy-oh-boy, does OLO's Robin DeLeon satisfy that need! Her full, beautifully colored execution of the Italianate 'Ginannina Mia' is balanced with spun-gold coloratura sparkle...and all the rest of the principals sing with high energy and great promise." (Opera News)
