"The show is a beautiful blend of story, singing, and dancing. Not enough credit can be given to those who performed and produced this entry in the Fringe Festival." - Bob Evans,

"Here's one that I'd call a gem, cut and polished, all its facets working together: Red Death is an operatic diamond." - ChaimEliyahu, KC Stage

"Red Death... lived up to some early hype" - Liz Cook, The Pitch

"Red Death is, as operas go, about as accessible as it gets." - kellyluck, KC Stage

"Red Death should be on your 'to see' list for this year’s Fringe." - Lee Hartman, KC Metropolis

"Those who have attended performances at KC Fringe though the years expect to see something unusual, but few of us have seen anything quite like Red Death.” - Robert Trussell, KC Star

"I am not an opera fan, but this presentation could convert me." - Detailer, KC Stage
