The Queen of Spades

Lowell House Opera

Cambridge, MA

“The musical aspect of the performance rose to superb virtuosity. The orchestra’s performance was very strong, in spite of the acoustic difficulty… Brass avoided overwhelming other sections, which was remarkable for such a resonant space.”

–Jude D. Russo, Harvard Crimson

“The 64-piece orchestra, under music director Lidiya Yankovskaya, gave the overture a raw, blistering, almost hysterical reading, heavy on brass and percussion, and that set the tone for the evening.”

–Jeffrey Gantz, Boston Globe
