Reviews & Features

“Stunning visuals”
—Lily Janiak | San Francisco Chronicle
“Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes will change you, [composer] Kutulas suggests. Fairy tales are transformative, after all. Will the magic that put you in iron shoes pull you down, or will you use it to break free?”
—Lou Fancher | San Francisco Classical Voice
“Exquisite flashes of beauty”
—Emily S. Mendel | Berkeleyside
