The work is a remarkable piece of theatrical imagination, the kind Zimmerman has specialized in with productions such as MetamorphosesArgonautikaThe Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci and Arabian Nights…Zimmerman has created an epic tale of love and sacrifice with spectacular visual appeal, plenty of humor and remarkable emotional depth.”—Sacramento Bee
