A few interesting quotes from the article

1.       "new theme-inspired jathis knitted into the texture of an original composition"

2.       " a most unusually choreographed varnam ending, extremely chilling..."

3.       "Joyce transcended the traditional arangetram to uplift viewers"

4.       "Nivedita is deeply blessed to have performed this enormously difficult piece with sensitivity and thoughtfulness."

5.       "But when the Hail Mary sanchaari began, the devotion and love in the expression of this prayer was so personal, it drew tears on many faces, as if the Mother was present, blessing the sacred stage."

6.       "the entire arangetram was enchanting and ethereal...."
