“Add to the success, there was a Tony-winning director Jack O’Brien, the superb conducting of Patrick Summers and a stellar cast: Joyce DiDonato, Frederica von Stade, Nathan Gunn, Anthony Roth Costanzo, and a hysterical turn by Ailyn Pérez as the voracious young diva-to-be.” TheaterJones – Top Local Opera Performances

“This deeply moving and musically brilliant work concerns Arden Scott, a world-famous opera singer whose talents and aura inspire audiences . . . the casting was nearly perfect . . . a marvelous Ailyn Perez as a scheming soprano who wants to supplant Arden Scott . . .The whole cast was great.” WQXR Operavore – A Good Year for New Operas

Dallas Opera’s world premieres: “Starting with the multimedia sensation that was Everest last winter, and continuing up to the gobsmacking season premiere of Jake Heggie and Terrence McNally’s magnificent instant classic Great Scott . . . the Dallas Opera showed the community that the art form is alive and well, and can be as contemporary and relevant as anything Broadway can do.” Dallas Voice Top Events of 2015
