“Stellar sets and lighting aren’t an absolute requisite for bel canto opera; beautiful singing is the thing. But it helps that this production looks good… with its blue-green backdrops of Tyrolean peaks and cascades. The Marchioness’ parlor is indicated by immense golden door frames that are rather over-the-top but support the slapstick view.” – Lesley Valdes, The Philadelphia Inquirer, 4/22/1998

“Much credit must be given to the creative team Dorothy Danner, Boyd Ostroff, Beni Montresor and Steven Bryant for putting together a brilliant show with colorful, but not over done costumes and sets, and exquisite, and some fantastically comical, wigs.” – Press Desk, Opera Pulse, 5/4/2013

“Simple hangings, designed by Boyd Ostroff…favor a storybook look for the rustic Tyrolean setting. The Marquise’s interior is evoked with just outlines of pilasters, door frames, and hearth.” – Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News, 4/28/2013
