    I watched this production of Jenufa in 2012 and it was excellent! But I have to say Jennifer Larmore's voice is too small for this role. In contrast, I think La Gioconda has a first-rate casting (Hui...

    I really like all the singing here. Treleaven is incredibly strong vocally even in act III. Polaski is my favorite hochdramatische soprano of our time. Struckmann has an unforgettable timbre.

    I have to say December is a super-busy month for Ciofi, because she still needs to sing three performances of Lucia in Berlin. That tiny body has a huge power.

    I think the cast is pretty good, except that Martens seems a new name to me. I heard Hanna Schwarz's Grandmother in Berlin and she was incredible considering her age.
