Editorial Reviews
... the subtle, moody score, at war between its propulsive and serene impulses, felt more than equal in quality to the festive occasion. While criticisms of Mr. Glass s music as cookie-cutter have always been misguided, The Perfect American finds him in especially unpredictable form, experimenting with sonorities, textures and pacing. --The New York Times

...a great American opera that needs to be seen in L.A. And it is also the only great L.A. opera. --Los Angeles Times

...The Perfect American allows us to think anew about Walt Disney, 48 years after his death. The work neither eulogises nor ridicules him. Instead McDermott and Portra, via Glass` opulent score and Rudolf Wurlitzer`s pithy libretto, juxtapose Walt`s boundless ambitions and his personal frailties to give an almost sympathetic account of the man whose idle sketch of three circles became a mouse more popular (he says) than Jesus or Buddha. --Sydney Morning Herald
