“Nadja Michael is a marvellous actress here: … Her singing is superb. She is entirely girlish at the start, developing a powerful edge to her voice only when necessary, … In fact the moments when she is not singing are almost as exciting as her big scenes: … She seems vulnerable rather than icy after her encounter with John, … Her hypnotic stage presence is one of the great strengths of this DVD. …”
