“Loveless’s score, in particular, carried the drama, via the voices of the chorus and actors as well as her and Yamashiro’s accompaniment. Her music animated the poetry and the dance, and the harmony between the three gave life to the drama.” - Article: "Matricide in Manhattan: The Libation Bearers", The Virginia Advocate Review for The Oresteia - The Libation Bearers (Choephoroi)
