Notes & Reviews:

"Karita Mattila is a Leonora of astonishing force and concentration, qualities achieved at no loss of vocal beauty. As Florestan, Ben Heppner brings considerable grace to one of opera's most trying tenor roles. Rene Pape and Jennifer Welch-Babidge were both elegance itself. Falk Struckmann's Pizarro forced and blustered in a way not all that inappropriate to the part. The Met chorus, pushed to its limit, responds gloriously." - The New York Times
