CRITIC REVIEWS: “Opera reference books curiously skip over Vera Galupe-Borszkh, the world’s only traumatic soprano….Madame Vera, of course, is the uncanny creation of Ira Siff, who proves that female impersonation is the sincerest form of flattery. Like Barry Humphries, with his Dame Edna, Siff employs a combination of art and artifice to transcend caricature….not since Anna Russell have opera plots been skewered so delectably.”
