The Beautiful Swallow

Kristine Opolais‘s voice is one of “pliant phrasing and floating high notes.” (NY Times) She graces Puccini’s La Rondine (“The Swallow”–a long ignored opera) with casual beauty and unaffected virtuosity. This is certainly one of my favorite operas. Opolais promises to be one of my favorite sopranos. A sheer delight. “O sogno d’or, poter amar così!”
