"Kevin Burdette's droll, long-suffering Siroco nearly stole the show. His rich bass was firm and sonorous, and he dominated the stage, whether in madcap motion or simply arching an eyebrow in response to his colleagues' doings." -Opera News

"The king's astrologer, Siroco (a particularly lively, droll Kevin Burdette), gives the operetta its title as he manipulates the plot" -Variety

"Kevin Burdette, a young bass, was excellent as the King's astrologer." -Das Opernglas

"Leading the young cast [was] the Siroco of Kevin Burdette, looking like a handsome version of Boris Karloff's Mummy, manically darting about the stage." -American Record Guide

"Kevin Burdette applied his solemn bass and rubber-legged dance steps to the role of Siroco, the king's astrologer." New York Newsday

"Kevin Burdette is hilarious as the astrologer Siroco. He does a bizarre dance with a wedding cake attached to one hand, worthy of Groucho's Captain Spalding; and in a drunken duet, he and [King Ouf] walk off with the show." -Rochester City Newspaper
