"The opera is heavily inspired by the operas of Giacomo Meyerbeer....There are lots of memorable melodies and masses of sound....There is much to be pleased with in the recording....But what is important is the fine quality of the performance....Azaele's forbidding music is well handled by Zuin, with a trumpet-like heft that never falters, blasting in grand style with a feeling of genuine excitement."
