"[Scotto sings her first Met Luisa] with her usual energy, intensity and care for detail.” -- The New York Times

“Domingo had one of his best nights yet...pouring out tones of gleaming, manly strength and suavity. Milnes was likewise in top form while Bonaldo Giaiotti once again proved he is easily the finest Italian basso cantante in the business.” -- New York Daily News
