“As for Kathryn Lewek, she is fabulous in the title role: her technique is superlative, with a school trill, exceptionally smooth vocalizations and amazing high notes, but more willingly delivered pianississimo, even pianississimo or filés, rather than fortissimo. A tightrope walker’s art – including on stage – of total mastery, which never seeks the exploit, but always the most accurate theatrical and psychological expression.”
