"Eliza Bonet, as Kayla’s Mother, showed richly dark colors in her voice and used her every moment to great dramatic effect... her physical and vocal commitment is so believable to be “ecstatic” dramatic truth. Her own role in the climax of this opera is a stroke of brilliant dramatic writing and emotionally harrowing in Bonet’s performance."
