Joshua Kosman, the respected and brutally honest reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle, gave "The Rape of Lucretia" a great review, saying this about the trio of barihunks:

We learned during the performance run that Michael Rice plans on making this his final performance on the opera stage.

He's one of our favorite people in opera!
