"In this musically satisfying and dramatically different production of Aïda, another meaning is layered onto the tragic confluence of love and death. Catherine Martin was outstanding as Amneris, her urgency dissolving into devastating pathos in the final last."                                                                                  

-Santa Barbara Independent
