The Magic Mirror
New York International Fringe Festival
New York, NY
“The music by Polina Nazaykinskaya is simply brilliant, striking chords of emotion which profoundly support the voices. In turn Music Director Lidiya Yankovskaya coaxes every possible expressive note from the incredibly talented instrumentalists.”
–David Roberts, Theatre Reviews Limited
"The voices were universally strong, filling the theater to the rafters... The Juventas New Music Ensemble was terrific. The playing was sophisticated and richly colorful, helped by Ms. Yankovskaya’s musical direction."
–Joel Benjamin, Theater Pizzazz
"If this current production, which was presented as part of the NY International Fringe Festival, is any indication of the quality [Juventas] and professionalism of this creative entity, it certainly will have a long, bright future... it provides all that is truly necessary for an exhilarating one act opera."
–David Roberts, Theater Review Limited
