“… mezzo Sarah ChampionSarah Champion - Mezzo Soprano - © Studio 52 - Low res , herself a student of Miricioiu, was by far the discovery of the evening. Her assumption of the part of Dorotea, Lina’s cousin, was little short of magnificent. She clearly has a wide repertoire, as she has taken part in a staged setting for American Opera Theater  of Messiaen’s song cycle Harawi. Here she was fully in Verdian mode, making every phrase count. The overriding impression was that one wished Verdi had written more for Dorotea.” See and Heard International
