"Vocally, there is not a weak link among the chief characters; the main strength though is the father / daughter stage partnership between Nucci and Mula. Their teamwork builds up to a no-holds-barred climax at the end of Act II where Nucci is at his best swearing vengeance, sweat dramatically pouring. This final short number, with its hair raising shift upwards half way through is taken at breakneck speed, clearly designed to bring the house down - which it would if there was one." MusicWeb
