Great Scott (world premiere Dallas Opera 2015, San Diego Opera 2016)
Classical Voice North America:
"(Joyce) DiDonato was a wonder. And thanks to director Jack O'Brien and choreographer John de los Santos, here acting and movement - everyone's really - was dynamic and convincing."
"The choreography, by John de los Santos, does a wonderful job of the dance at the disastrous rehearsal and the finished opera."
San Diego Story:
"Choreographer John de los Santos devised a perfectly (and purposely) tacky pre-earthquake dance with four male dancers and a large ewer. ...they were mesmerizing."
"The witty choreography of the campy 'Fountain Dance' (in which everything at first goes wrong) is the work of John de los Santos."
