Notes and Editorial Reviews

Early in 1990, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa made a triumphant return to her native New Zealand to give three concerts, the last of which – in an outdoor event in Wellington, attracted an audience of more than seventy five thousand people enjoyed music ranging from Puccini to My Fair Lady.

Just over a year later, Kiri delighted an invited audience at Christopher Wren's Chapel of the Royal Navy College in Greenwich, London, with a program of Handel and Mozart. The climax of the evening – Mozart’s ‘Exsultate Jubilate’ – was acclaimed as of her finest ever performance.

Highlights from these memorable performances in two very different settings provide a perfect showcase for Kiri's unique voice.
