"Yet just as conflicted, in Alexandra Meier’s wonderful performance, is Sister Helen, as she is verbally lashed by the victims’ families for befriending what they regard, with some justification, as an evil monster.

Belying her slender frame, Meier has a mezzo voice of searing power. It’s the power of her performance that makes you realise that Terrence McNally’s libretto (based on Sister Helen Prejean’s autobiographical book) is as much about the near-impossibility of preaching Christian forgiveness in an “eye for an eye” community as it is about the specific inhumanity of the death penalty."

"Past actions were immaterial to her spiritual love for the condemned man, as the outstanding young mezzo Alexandra Meier made abundantly clear in her stellar performance."

"Alexandra Meier, in the trouser role of Jean, his ward and protégé, and Louisa Stirland as Aurora bring a flood of youthful charm and vivacity as they sing of their love."
