R E V I E W S

"A quartet of major voices was on hand to fill the leading roles... Naturally, they gave fans of sheer vocalism a great deal to cheer about during the evening... Mr. Pavarotti gave a splendid full-throated performance... He was also a sensitive partner in the many ensemble numbers... Miss Mitchell filled the house gloriously... Mr. Milnes was a dominating force... Mr. Raimondi gave his usual solid performance, musically and dramatically... James Levine's conducting had plenty of passion and momentum."
