"Such home-grown magical music-making deserves celebration, support and, most of all,
profound gratitude."

(John Zeugner, Worcester Telegram, 6/17/07)

"Great cities are blessed with great cultural institutions.
Worcester Opera Works can now be added to that group."

"...as tight and beautifully sung a presentation (as) could have been found at the Met."

(Dan Sweeney, Worcester Telegram, 1/14/09)

"Professional aplomb, spot-on singing... voices were first-rate, bell clear and energetic...
wonderfully costumed"

(John Zeugner, Worcester Telegram, 3/15/10)

"The outstanding feature of this production was the singing. 
The scales, trills, and arpeggios... were handily executed...musically polished, with fine intonation....
a boisterous, fun-filled affair, with splendid singing by local talent.
(Joyce Tamer, Worcester Telegram, 6/13/10)
