Reviews:

“Amanda Woodbury is just about perfect as Marguerite, the innocent young girl who is the true object of Méphistofélès’ machinations. Her performance of the so-called “Jewel Song,” “Je ris de me voir,” was masterful musically and dramatically — Woodbury conveyed the surprise, the joy, the excitement and the wistfulness of this scene with a rich, almost burnished tone that flowed effortlessly through registers.
She was equally good in the mournful “Il ne revient pas,” as Marguerite reflects on Faust’s abandoning her after she gave birth to their child, and in the mad scene at the finale.” — James D. Watts, Jr., Tulsa World
