“But if one is looking for a particular reason to hear this Lucia, it is to be found above all with the singer of the title role, Kathryn Lewek. With a rather common tone colour, the American attracts with a near-flawless vocal technique (one acidic passing note to be deplored in Quando rapito in estasi, before an exceptional counter-grade!), with a power and a length of breath to make the last treble of the sextet last more than ten seconds! Very clear in the vocalisations and with an impressive capacity to spin the notes, the soprano sometimes reminds us of Sutherland by her dramatic coloratura style, and provides a real bel canto lesson until the madness scene!”
