Acclaim for this Fanciulla from The New York Times:
"I cannot think of a soprano who can sing any better this demanding role. What wins you over is Voight's deep feeling for the character. The role of Johnson gives Giordani ample opportunities to luxuriate in tenorial top notes and unleash impassioned phrases. Gallo is a coolly menacing Jack Rance. Thanks in large part to the stylish, nuanced and sensitive conducting of Nicola Luisotti, the score emerged as arguably Puccini's most subtly written and boldly modern music".
