"Mr. Baird stepped forward in an Entrée d'Apolon, and his mask and enormous
plumed headdress contributed to his god-like bearing."
~ NY Times, 1997


"The star of the production was guest artist Thomas Baird. A luxurious calm and elegance,
what the French call majesteusement, are the hallmarks of Mr. Baird's art, a refinement and reflection
on each movement and no wasted effort. The famous Entrée d'Apolon was a highlight of the evening."
~ Toronto Early Music News, 1997


"The celebrated Entrée d'Apolon was danced with beaucoup de panache by Thomas Baird..."
~ Le Devoir, Montréal, 1998
