"From her first entrance...Westbroek is captivating. She boasts the wonderfully meaty instrument required for Minnie (especially in the all-important middle voice), plus the right wholesome, strawberry-blonde appearance."
(International Record Review)

"What we see is an updated parable of the American dream...in the final scene [Minnie] appears, like Jean Harlow, at the top of a glittering staircase to be carried off to a Hollywood happy ending...Does it all make sense? Not really; but the characters are vividly portrayed and the settings look spectacular."
(Gramophone)

"From her first entrance...Westbroek is captivating. She boasts the wonderfully meaty instrument required for Minnie (especially in the all-important middle voice), plus the right wholesome, strawberry-blonde appearance...This endearing portrayal will surely take its place in the great line of sopranos who have excelled as Minnie...Carlo Rizzi leads a highly passionate reading"
