"Borrowing, as all opera does, from every medium--fiction, film, theater, painting, and photography--'Beneath the Roses,' taken as a whole, is a highly contrived, arbtrary-seeming narrative, staged in a way that both tests the limits of realism and makes no effort to disguise its artificiality" (10) --from introduction by Russell Banks
