CRITIC REVIEW:

“…Reiner’s loving touch does reveal the opera’s profound humanity…..Schöffler is a capital Sachs. He never falters throughout the afternoon….De Los Angeles seldom ventured upon the Wagnerian terrain….The warmth of her middle and low voice sheds a sunny radiance upon Eva’s too brief scenes. Of course, she is always the exemplary musician. Of equal worth, her burger’s daughter is delightfully spunky in the second-act encounter with Walther, tantalizingly coquettish in her shoe complaint to the bemused Sachs, and utterly charming in general.”

- Paul Jackson, SIGN-OFF FOR THE OLD MET, pp.78-79
