Paying patron perspective review

"...How does one edit a perfect opera down to a cast of four and still maintain the essence of the work? ... The result was way more than I expected. Director Nicholas Muni created a thoughtful and respectful option. ... The challenge was met creatively and with artistic integrity. Go and support it." payingpatronperspective.globspot.com

Asianreviewofbooks Kiss of Tosca More than Musical Review 2018.png

"... More Than Musical presents its productions as something along the lines of opera updated and streamlined for the 21st-century ... the net result has an esthetic that strikes me as being as much theatre as opera. ... Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention, and there were moments of brilliance." Peter Gordon, Asianreviewofbooks.com
