SF Chronicle Review of DAUGHTER OF THE RED TZAR:
"It is compelling and often illuminating in its details...
Scola-Prosek's score is a creation marked by shapely
vocal set pieces and an alluring melodic vein that probes the drama. Svetlana's teenage heartache is skillfully
sketched in lyrical numbers"
