Deborah Martin of the San Antonio Express-News notes,
"Composer/arranger David Fick adapted Mozart for SOLI’s instrumentation.
“ 'He completely sort of reduced it without losing its richness,' Torgul said. 'It’s just such an awesome feeling to be able to have the whole orchestral sound being reduced to just the four of us.'
"Opera San Antonio provided six singers: Rainelle Krause, Diane Stanley, Eric Schmidt, Timothy Birt, Rob Saldaña and Abraham Sarastro. They will perform in costumes on loan from the collection of the New York-based Theatre Development Fund."
