"Conductor and COT music director Lidiya Yankovskaya led the soloists, choirs and the Chicago Sinfonietta in a crisp performance that served populist and classical idioms with equal aplomb." -Chicago Tribune
"Last, but by no means least, there are the musicians of the Chicago Sinfonietta, led Lidiya Yankovskaya – Chicago Opera Theater’s ever adventurous and impassioned music director, who helped nurture this project. Together they captured to perfection every musical style in this formidable new addition to the operatic repertoire." -WTTW Chicago
