«The fire was started by the soprano Marga Cloquell with L'extase de La Vièrge with a secure line of singing, very atractive timbre and an assorted palette of shades. Later she would be a truly fairytale Cendrillon just as the author wrote on the score, to end up with the Saint Suplice duet with the perfect composition of the character." OPERA ACTUAL»
