When Gerhilde (Die Walküre) started to sing, I turned to the friend next to me and said, "Who's that?" She was the soprano Kelly Cae Hogan, making her Met debut. We must hear more of her.

Norma

Norma on stairsNorma finale Her dramatic soprano is the center of the performance, a shining demonstration of technical spotlessness. She does justice to the part at every moment: drawing a portrait full of emotion, authority, lust for revenge, and surrender. Her voice is more plush and warm than those of her famous predecessors in the role.

Relying on the cushion of a secure middle voice, neither the extreme coloratura passages nor the highest reaches gave her the smallest difficulty. In addition, her emotional expression had much to offer, she made the part deeply her own. She gives the role, not an exhibitionist drama as Callas did, but rather a more reserved interpretation that was hugely successful.
