"...by far the most powerful and true of the women in the production is Gordana Rashovich, whose queenElizabeth alone can match Thomas.  Their Act iV scene, in which Richard proposes to marry her daughter, after having murdered her sons, proves far and away the production's most fiery dual..."

Master Class / Best Diva
  "...Rashovich was at once transparent and luminous, reflecting McNally's fleeting brilliance while radiating her own ineffable genius.  Her eyes flashing with penetrating zeal and her every gesture and movement perfectly evoking Callas's unparalleled acting technique instead of merely imitating it, Rashovich's rendering of the private, inner Callas also proved sublime. And when she recalled Maria's years of triumph at La Scala, her virtuoso performance reached its zenith as she declared that, as Medea, she "could feel the stones of Epidaurus beneath the floorboards." Beautifully reconciling devine inspiration with human limitation, Rashovich's efforts bespoke an artist's unflinching desire to embrace one's all too frail humanity." Denver Post
