"There is no question as to who is the master of the word in Ipsa Dixit. Throughout the performance, soprano Anna Schubert commands the stage like a force of nature, part Oxford don, part commedia dell’arte clown, part Wicked Witch of the West delivering Soper’s octave-leaping score in the speech-song (sprechstimme) style pioneered by Arnold Schoenberg. It’s a role of mind-bending vocal demands, and Schubert is an ideal interpreter."

-Jim Farber, SF Classical Voice

"Schubert is spectacular."

-Mark Swed, LA Times


"Soprano Anna Schubert delivered a tour de force in a role whose difficulty lies even more in the precise, often rapid-fire diction and an ever-shifting array of vocal sounds than in the bursts and flurries of musical notes that regularly come out of nowhere."

-Greggory Moore, Random Lengths News


"Anna Schubert is a fiercely articulate Lady Reason..."

-Zachary Woolfe, New York Times


"A standout was Ms. Schubert, who made Lady Reason's robotic insistence affecting as well as comic..."

-Heidi Waleson, Wall Street Journal


"Always funny when Soper wants her to be, here Schubert absolutely slays as Lady Reason..."

-Greggory Moore, Random Lengths News


"Soprano Anna Schubert... vamped as a floozy in Act II before revealing her previous self, nearly stealing the show."

-Richard S. Ginell, Musical America

-Greggory Moore, Random Lengths News

-Richard S. Ginell, SF Classical Voice


"Anna Schubert is luminously expressive as the highly emotional and dramatic Elisabeth..."

-Anita W. Harris, Signal Tribune

"...all four performances were solid, with Schubert particularly standing out..."

-Greggory Moore, Random Lengths News

"Schubert... was very convincing as the dominate [sic] and domineering sister... Schubert’s actions draw a clear and direct line toward that end."

-Jeff Slayton, LA Dance Chronicle

"Soprano Anna Schubert... is an expert at projecting fear, which was just as useful for the role of Elisabeth as it was in [p r i s m] — and she caught the character’s childlike quality as well."

-Richard S. Ginell, SF Classical Voice


"Anna Schubert, as Bibi... conveyed both the radiance and the instability of these projected selves."

-Alex Ross, The New Yorker

-Rebecca S. Lentjes, National Sawdust Log

"...challenging roles perfectly carried off by Rebecca Jo Loeb and Anna Schubert..."

-Christopher Corwin, Parterre Box

"Schubert's soprano is softly lyric and moves from innocence to devastation with an actor's ease."

-Susan Hall, Berkshire Fine Arts

"Her face is expressive. Her voice is powerful, precise, with round, elegant edges. Soprano Anna Schubert is revelatory in this role."

-Catherine Womack, I Care If You Listen

"In a dazzling performance... soprano Anna Schubert disrupted opera’s canonical narrative of women’s undoing..."

-Charles Donelan, Santa Barbara Independent

-Richard S. Ginell, Classical Voice North America

"...the dramatic power of Loeb and Schubert’s performances that give prism its overwhelming power."

-Jim Farber, San Francisco Classical Voice

"Schubert’s acting is first-rate. Opera characters run the risk of being nothing more than caricatures if executed poorly, held together by scenery and costume. Not so with Schubert, whose role demands physical strength coupled with fragility. Whether crawling from bed to chair on her damaged legs or hurtling her weight against dancers holding her aloft, Schubert held nothing back in her emodiment of the protagonist."

-Leaha Maria Villarreal, New Classic LA

"Anna Schubert as Bibi sang and acted most effectively with her silvery lyric soprano voice."

-Maria Nockin, Broadway World

-Lauri D. Goldenhersh, Singerpreneur
