"Fully produced, with a student orchestra on fire and the singers performing wonderfully well, the event was a stunner, not needing any caveats. Of the many memorable experiences at the Conservatory over the years — Simon Rattle and John Adams conducting, Thomas Hampson and Elly Ameling giving masterclasses — this was among the best...The impressive, imaginative sets were by Steven C. Kemp"
