“… a Butterfly of such sensitivity and insight that it scored in every possible way… pure poetry from start to finish. A fabulous achievement, and a real feather in Bury Court’s cap, as resplendent as any coat of many colours.”

Roderic Dunnett, Seen and Heard International

“Burbach's concept...worked astonishingly well...Mamie Matsuda...gave an utterly convincing performance."

Yehuda Shapiro, Opera
