“Miss Ciesinski was a perfect Erica —beautiful, intense, singing with taste and skill.”
- Harold C. Schonberg, The New York Times
"The supporting cast is strong, though Nathan Berg (the Doctor) and Katherine Ciesinski (luxury casting in the tiny role of Margret) stand out as vividly drawn, uncaricatured vocal actors."
Peter Quantrill, Gramophone
". . . mezzo-soprano Katherine Ciesinski brings the often-negligible Margret to life with vocalism of inviolable concentration that makes her a fitting partner for the opera’s equivocal heroine . . . Ciesinski articulates ‘In’s Schwabenland, da mag ich nit’ with apposite simplicity, an exemplary example of the benefit of the work of a major artist in a minor role."
Joseph Newsome, Voix des Arts
