Critique: "it is rare, indeed, that an opera production as brilliantly conceived as Scheer and Leonard Foglia's functions so seamlessly with score and libretto to form a unified whole. . . . [Wallace's] scene-by-scene and, at times, moment-by-moment analysis not only reveals the author's remarkable facility with the work but provides numerous specifics to listen for in "Moby-Dick.""--"Opera News"
