Soprano SUZAN HANSON delivered a superbly etched Laurie, the young girl whose heart and spirit could not be contained by the fence around her home.

John Schulson - The Virginia Gazette

Soprano SUZAN HANSON nicely caught the dilemma of Laurie, trapped between her desires and the expectations of her family.  HANSON sang with a strong and clear voice that gathered security as the opera progressed, perhaps mirroring the change in Laurie.

Paul Sayegh - The Virginia- Pilot

SUZAN HANSON was a fetching, vibrant and full- voiced Laurie

Tim Page - The Washington Post

SUZAN HANSON is Laurie. Her powerful soprano is so rich in nuance and texture, she is such a sensitive compelling actor, that I cannot conceive of this role being done by anyone else.
