The two main protagonists brilliantly capture all the opera’s drama and passion; DiDonato is magnificent and moving.

– Gramophone [7/2014]

“One might have guessed that she could sing this demandingly florid and intensely lyrical music with crystalline Italian diction, impeccable technical security and dazzling stylistic finesse, but the fierce ardent passion she brings might surprise those who have only heard her in lighter histrionic fare. Even those with indelible memories of Janet Baker in this part will be blown away.” – Daily Telegraph (UK)
