Her pearly light soprano easily dispatched Adele's florid flights (despite the rude extra-musical intrusions on her two arias); her acting seemed just as effortless, and, unlike her stage sister's (Betsy Wolfe was the culprit), mercifully unvulgar. I wish I could have seen her in a more operetta-friendly space than the cavernous Met, whose uncongenial size necessitated miking--bad miking--for the dialogue and otherwise made most of the singers sound distinctly small-scale.
