NICHOLAS ZUMBRO, composer
"And they were all there, the musical elite of Athens, to applaud the premiere performance of Nicholas Zumbros's impressive opera Kassandra."
"I really enjoyed the opera - it's a wonderful work - impassioned and lyrically dramatic. The climactic scene in particular builds so well."
George Tsontakis, composer
"Kassandra, a stunning reworking of the Agamemnon story...Mr. Zumbro has fashioned something succinct and gripping..in his atmospheric recreation of ancient myth and ritual..."
John Bell Young, critic
"Kassandra is impressively beautiful, ..a rare talent...and the subject matter is important and moving."
Jerome Lawrence, author
In 2003 Kassandra has been honored by inclusion in The Oxford University Archive of Greek and Roman Drama and analysed at some length in Nine Twentieth Century Operas by Dr. Ion Zotos.
