LATER THE SAME EVENING


Musto captures  the bittersweet  aura of the  piece  perfectly in a score  that never  wastes a note or a moment of the audience's time. His accessible but sophisticated style has many roots in  American musical  theater -- which makes the passing references to the hit show the characters are presumably  watching all the more delicious -- but the flow of conversation and mood is  elegantly captured in a score that combines an unerring feel for smart text setting and pointed instrumental commentary that is both melodically graceful and harmonically pungent. Musto's many songs are treasures of the American repertory, and here he establishes himself with even more distinction as a skilled opera composer.  -  Musical America
