"…Floods of glorious sound"

-Opera News

"Hill is a revelation...a radiant force."

-LA Weekly 

"Hill perfectly caught the character's exhaustion and isolation...her "Ain't it a Pretty Night" epitomized the opera's music as a whole." 

-San Francisco Classical Voice

"The most finely drawn character is Laura, to whom the excellent soprano Shana Blake Hill brings a feasibly coy rectitude."

-Mark Swed, LA Times
