★★★★½ “This is independent theatre at it’s finest, and you don’t need to be an opera buff – or even minor enthusiast – to walk out completely spellbound” Byron Bache, Herald Sun
★★★★½ “This is a must see for anyone who’s ever trained to become a singer, actor, dancer or musician. You will spend the evening on the edge of your seat, desperately hoping that Callas won’t pick you as her next ‘victim’.” Josephine McEniery, Arts Hub
★★★★ “It’s hard to imagine anyone giving a better performance as Maria Callas in the hit Broadway play Master Class than Maria Mercedes does here; in fact, it’s a role she seems born to play.” Jo Litson, Sunday Telegraph
“When seasoned, highly respected industry professionals speak in an awed hush about a production in terms of “the best version of this show I’ve seen”, this is indeed a most significant production of a significant play.” Peter Hurley, Classic Melbourne
“Master Class is truly a master class in performance and presentation, a lesson in excellence. Brava!” Richard Cotter, Australian Stage
