La Flamenca Review: "The performance by the opera company was strong and filled with that emotional component needed for the audience to be engaged.  However, the three performances that stood out were the strong soprano vocals and engaging performance of the lead Ms. Kenya Lawrence Jackson as La Flamenca. Terrance Brown, played the antagonist American soldier- Jackson Sterner and with his baritone voice and acting invoked passion and drove the narrative.  Last but not least, was the piano playing of Dr. Wilfred Delphin whose dexterity was matched by his brilliance and mastery of this composition that has never been heard before.  It was a privilege to witness history being made and to welcome home one of New Orleans and Louisiana's native son- if only through the opera that he created." J.C. Philips, Bacchus Tales and Company
