"Bass-baritone Kevin Burdette put across the Father's music with a sharply focused clarity and power. Mr. Burdette was also the star of 'Emperor,' in which he played the combined role of Death and the Loudspeaker with an idiosyncratic, darkly comic incisiveness that underpinned a magnificent vocal performance." -New York Times

"Kevin Burdette gave a rich, varied vocal performance as Death and the Loudspeaker, possessing an expressive physicality worthy of a silent comedian, and tenor John MacMaster was equally effective as his sidekick and chess partner, the disillusioned Harlequin." -Opera News

"The cast is anchored by an impressively deft performance from Kevin Burdette as Death and the Loudspeaker." -Boston Globe

"Burdette, singing and acting terrifically as Death ... [was] joined by a solid cast." -Boston Herald

Leading the cast was New York bass Kevin Burdette as Death.... His ringing voice is both vigorous and sonorous." -Boston Phoenix
