"The performance was superbly sung, particularly by mezzo-soprano Katie Beck as Sesto. Beck. . .was terrific, performing with all the fervent valor required of the betrayed patrician. She possesses a Frederica von Stade-like shimmer to her voice that is balanced with solid technique and florid musicality. All in all, it was a first-class interpretation."
