It is the music in this opera that makes it soar. It is melodious and magnificent and a joy to sing.

"A searing evening of opera theater"

The vivid stage presences and vocal aplomb of Loyd and Cheney, the darkly ominous production and well-paced, mounting horror, and the musical thrills of the final act...conveyed the full weight of this most dramatic of operas.
— Salt Marsh Opera, Rigoletto. Review by Milton Moore. theday.com
