"In the zarzuela-like ‘Lucrezia,’ a fast-moving farce billed as a riff on Machiavelli’s ‘Mandragola’ and set in Argentina, Mr. Bolcom illuminated the greed and unquenchable desires of a naughty set of characters with an eclectic score featuring a rambunctious opening followed by echoes of tango, Andalusian bullfight music, a Straussian waltz and jazz." -The New York Times.
