“Alissa Anderson, a fast-rising contralto, deserves to graduate to a more substantial assignment than the one she’s given here, as the King’s conniving niece who plots to usurp the throne for herself.”
    -Broad Street Review


    "As the plotting duo Princess Clarissa and Leander, Allissa Anderson and Zachary Altman oozed mellifluous malintent. Ms. Anderson’s generous, throbbing mezzo made the most of her every utterance"
    -Opera Today


    "Texas contralto Alissa Anderson, on whose Maddalena I had reported earlier this year was the villainous Princess Clarice. . . Both Altman and Anderson were persuasive in their vocal projection of evil intent."
    -Opera Warhorses


    "All were notable and deserving of mention, but I was especially impressed by the four leading female roles. . . and contralto Alissa Anderson as Princess Clarissa, the king’s scheming niece, menacing in fox-hunting attire."
