As Sophie, Sara Buffamanti contributes a welcome freshness and relatively natural persona to the dark doings. The character develops as a strong but guileless woman.
THE LAWS OF MOTION
"...becomes gripping when the focus turns to the budding romance between Christopher (Gregg Mozgala), a handicapped Kinko’s employee who calls his job working “in publishing,” and Anna (Sara Buffamanti), a dominatrix.
THE RING CYCLE
The New York Times
"The final scene, in which Wotan condemns his beloved daughter, the brassy tomboy Brünnhilde (Sara Buffamanti), transcends cheeky parody to achieve a genuinely haunting potency."
"Wotan and his willful daughter Brünnhilde (Sara Buffamanti, who brings an appropriate 1980s brattishness to opera’s most famous horned Valkyrie) are behind the manipulations, precipitating a disastrous bending of the rules with every hallmark of Reaganite foreign policy."
ARTIFACTS OF CONSEQUENCE
Ari (a delightfully goofy Sara Buffamanti). She’s a pathetically impressionable creature of a degraded culture, but when she gleefully sings Mr. Lewis’s “Power of Love,” the pleasure on her face is not merely manufactured, it’s also real. And by the end, it might be all she has left.
