It also features Kiri Te Kanawa's first performance in London of the role of Marschallin, which "deserves to be ranked among her finest achievements" (International Herald Tribune). Performed at the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, with Sir Georg Solti conducting the Royal Opera Chrous and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
