Absorbing, Great singing, Intense, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if You would like a small talented opera about Nazi survivors in English that is not too long.

Don't see it if Opera isn't your thing even though this is in English with quite a lot of spoken dialogue so the story isn't hard to follow.

Complex music, Great voices, Interesting storyline, Operatic, Worthy addition to genre

See it if appreciate great voices singing interesting opera fare with a decent context & storyline, live musicians & decent production values

Don't see it if no interest in opera or traveling to TFTNC

"An exquisite new opera…Yachechak is a true standout as Lena…The anger, fear, and loneliness felt by all the characters are effectively captured by Spektor’s music. The story continually twists and turns, adding new characters and plot points sure to keep audiences interested…The cast has amazing chemistry…This professional-grade opera transports audiences into a new world on many different levels and is surely a best bet for a unique theater experience."
