"Julie Sits Waiting is a small gem of complex proportions, bursting at the seams at every moment, giving the audience prolonged moments of spectacular sound and projection as the actors leave the stage, only to return to the fully engaged, and darkly invigorating story they tell through an incredibly diverse storehouse of physical and vocal brilliance."

"...a feast for the eyes and ears, worth experiencing for its stars’ vocal work alone. It’s also a terrific example of multimedia being used to enhance and drive opera forward, while never usurping its core."

“Dufort, known for scoring the weird and wonderful choreography of Marie Chouinard, creates a riot of textures: stormy love provokes a downpour of white noise; the detumescent aftermath of sex is conveyed in gently swirling strings. The music is enjoyably familiar in its dissonance. Smatterings of percussion recall Varèse, while squiggly reeds tip their hat to free jazz.”
