News Gazette: John Frayne: Solid Reviews for 'The Rape of Lucretia'
Sweeping Emotive Power: Lucretia in Britten's Rape of Lucretia
"The major action of the opera, the assault, both emotional and violent, of Tarquinius upon the virtuous Lucretia generated sweeping emotive power in the dedicated singing of Lituma and Cuva. The end of this work gave ample opportunity for Lituma, in a scene in which Lucretia prepares for suicide, and her husband, Collatinus, sung by Salazar, to express feelings evoking pity for the tragic loss."
