"Susannah Biller mainly took the opposity tack, reveling in the high spirits of "Die Fledermaus" and "Candide." The more flamboyant the music was, the more she let loose with vibrant high notes and sure-fire vocal acrobatics. "Glitter and be Gay" from "Candide" brought down the house." Steven Brown - Charlotte Observer
"Biller managed these metamorphoses with dazzling speed and wit, matching her rich body language to the various wardrobe themes, while dispatching her vocal fioriture securely and often in gleaming tone." David J. Baker - Opera News
