Ms. Bennett works the same magic with the title role... Her adroit performance is as well suited to the libretto’s subtleties as her voice is to the music’s thrashing intensity.

This was a phenomenal performance by Bennett. Fresh out of Juilliard, her singing was excellent. Her voice has a natural, warm, creamy beauty, and to open she was able to make it sound eerie and disembodied... She brought the entire form of the work to life. There are few actors of any kind who can grip the audiences attention and express a deep array of thoughts and meanings just by sitting there, and Bennett was utterly magnetic throughout.
