CRITIC REVIEWS:

“…the all-drag, all opera, all fun DVD, starring the one, the only, the fabulously talented, the impossibly diva-esque prima donna, Mme Vera Galupe-Borszkh….Make no mistake, these guys and ‘gals’ really can sing, especially Vera, who has amazing breath control that any opera singer would envy….Lavish costumes add color to the simple sets. It’s not just hysterically funny, but it’s good singing done with affection.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Nov./Dec., 200

“Nothing about opera remains sacred in this hilarious, knowing spoof, a mock biography of the (fictional) prima donna Vera Galupe-Borszkh. VERA - LIFE OF A DIVA traces the outsized performer's rise from obscurity in Odessa to fame, fortune, and near-tragedy in Rome.”
