Opera News review of  Odysseus Women + Anais Nin in New York

‘It unified the whole into an evocative meditation on femininity in its strongest sense.
By the end of the evening the entire cast was fully nude. In the close intimate environment of National Sawdust, this very nudity itself took on a powerful directorial impact.

This was a very fulfilling production of wonderful dramatic opera and a sensational beginning to the Center for Contemporary Opera’s season
