...the opera is a two-act futuristic tragicomedy that “mixes intellectual traditions of Russian avant-garde and fast pacing style of an action thriller.”   

                David Salazar for Operawire, November 2018 

“ Black Square is an English-language, avant-garde opera, created first and foremost for American audiences: not a museum piece but a new work of theatre, intended to bring something of Kruchenykh and Malevich to life today, simultaneously moving and delighting contemporary audiences.”

      Jessica Hinds-Bond, The Theatre Times, December 2017

"Konyukhov’s direction was unafraid to go for broad, outrageous physical comedy with a fine appreciation for bad taste. Imagine Benny Hill doing Russian fairy tales and you’ll get the idea. The overall style aesthetic can be described as Brighton Beach Russian nightclub meets Diaghilev on LSD in a dark alley. It was all too much and shouldn’t have worked – but somehow it did."  

                                           Gay City News, (June 2017)

"This might be the first must-see opera production of the Trump era."

                                                                                          Forbes (April 2017)

 "We were constantly astonished by the originality which is difficult to describe”

"New Opera NYC made their visit to Fort Mason’s Cowell Theater pay off big time on Friday’s opening night, turning Tchaikovsky’s one-act opera Iolanta into the musical equivalent of a highlight reel...It was left to Tchaikovsky’s blind innocent and the men swirling around her to lift this New Opera NYC night at the Cowell skyward. "
