“Leah Partridge actually stopped the show…” – Star Tribune, Minneapolis
“The unquestionable high point of the evening had to be Partridge’s first act aria, complete with vocal pyrotechnics, martini mixing, and gun cleaning.” – Twin Cities Arts
“Partridge’s portrayal of Aurelia Havisham was a fascinating and complex interplay of genteel fragility and raging acrimony. Dressed in faded lace, hair in vivid red curls, her eyes wide, her movements lithe, her sanity in shambles and her voice phenomenally affecting, Partridge plied every nuance of Argento’s ingenious, modernist score, playing the room expertly, caressing our sensibilities at one moment as the expectant young bride, her voice delicately evoking the charms and decorum of a bygone era; then, as the scorned, embittered spinster, giving vent to despair that skirted the verges of self-destruction, all of it building to a climax of shattering histrionic and vocal combustion as she flung a clock from the mantelpiece, dashing it to pieces, seemingly in vain hope of stopping time itself. It was a dazzling performance.” – La Scena Online
