"brilliantly staged by Anna Theodosakis, a rising and talented operatic stage director...By giving the physical, believable acting an equal place alongside Britten’s musical score Theodosakis achieved a visceral impact." - David Richards, Toronto Concert Review

"Anna Theodosakis...tapped into the chemistry of Char's Lucretia and MacNeil's Tarquinius very well, and her use of the Male and Female Chorus not just as an omniscient narrator but as actual forces that drive some of their choices was very successful." - Gregory Finney, Schmopera

"The drama itself gets a pretty crisp and dynamic’s tight, physical and right on the edge of violence when the guys are together."​  - John Gilks, Opera Ramblings
