"The clear star of the show is mezzo-soprano Lindsey Anderson, whose portrayal of Horace’s estranged wife Augusta is so commanding that the evening should have been called The Ballad of Augusta Tabor. Her work is simply a tour de force of both musicianship and acting.
She portrays a harridan so formidable she could stop a raging bull dead at 50 feet with just a look. Her costuming is perfect; she sails across the stage like the QE II. Her voice is massive, replete with color, even across all registers, and she is clearly always in control of her musical line."
