‘The minimalist set and costume design by George Souglides scored big, with simple yet highly imaginative effects...Each transfiguration was larger then the previous, magically accomplished’….’The evocative and colorful costume design was effectively based on traditional Indian and Asian street and stage garb, with a couple of the specialty dance turns being dazzlingly outfitted’. James Sohre, Opera today.

…’ beautiful, richly-colored stage pictures… The transformation scenes are at first hypnotic visual poetry…Andrew Patner, Chicago Sunday Times
