The review in The New York Times stated: "Calvé's impersonation of Anita, the Navarraise woman, is both vocally and histrionically a highly artistic achievement. Bevignani dragged to such an extent that Calvé was compelled to give him the tempi with movements of head and foot so pronounced as to make the audience uncomfortable."
