"Chéreau’s attention to detail did not end with the principle characters. It is hard to remember a production in which the fifth maid’s defense of Elektra has been as movingly and clearly expressed as it was here in the magnificent singing of soprano Roberta Alexander."
"Roberta Alexander’s Maria is glorious"
(Harnoncourt Porgy & Bess cd)
“She sang with intense personal involvement, a tone both sweet and plaintive, and a deep sensitivity to the power and meaning of the words.”
““The singing of Roberta Alexander, in the soprano part, went beyond them to touch the very soul of the music.”
