Notes and Editorial Reviews
The principal reason for acquiring this recording...is Ying Huang's extraordinary performance as Butterfly. The Chinese soprano offers a towering portrayal of the tragically doomed Cio-cio San. With her pure, high, youthful voice, Butterfly for once sounds as girlish as she should and Huang's beautiful singing is hard to resist.

-- Lawrence Johnson, Chicago Tribune [7/28/96]
