OPERA

La Gioconda
Metropolitan Opera, New York


    "The obvious star of the evening was the contralto Ewa Podles. Inexplicably ignored by the Met since 1984, she has become a cult figure everywhere else. As old Cieca, she exhibited enough vocal generosity, physical pathos and expressive sensitivity to make a small role seem huge."
