"Middleman’s violent child birthing scene at the start of the opera revealed a singer who is vocally up to new challenges that belie her youth... This is a VOICE. Congratulations to whomever cast Middleman in this role, which could have easily turned camp, but in Middleman’s hands feels visceral and authentic."

- Vocal Arts Chicago 2019
