Susanna Andersson reviews
'The cast is exceptionally strong, especially Brian Asawa as the narcissistic gold-suited Prince Go-Go, and Susanna Andersson as the manic Gepopo, chief of the secret police.'

'...the truly dizzying coloratura of Susanna Andersson, as Venus and Gepopo...'

'Susanna Andersson, plainly at the start of a major international career, was a beautiful as well as frightening Queen of the Night...'

'The song prize went to the glamorous and glitzy Swedish soprano Susanna Andersson, who had been another obvious hot tip.
