Te Kanawa at her peak
Calicokid | San Francisco, CA USA | 10/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This lavish production from the ROHCG beautifully preserves the Amelia of Kiri Te Kanawa from her long best period. As usual, she is stunning to look at but that shouldn't detract from one of the most beautiful voices of the recent years. The entire cast is superb. A memorable performance for repeated viewing."
