Alan Wells in The Listener reviewed the premiere of this work in May 1997. "Comedy was indeed to the fore ... the moments of deliberate inaudibility, when the protagonist ... retreated into his 'deafness', were wittily simulated (right down to tinnitus on the violin's top string."
Commissioned by the Pocket Opera of Wellington with funding from Creative New Zealand
Libretto written by the composer with Raydia d'Elsa
23 May 1997: Performed by Pocket Opera of Wellington; Bats Theatre, Wellington
