It is true that the visit of any prominent opera company will provoke a certain interest -- for whatever repertory specialties it may bring, and for its particular way of dealing with that repertory. Its way may not be better than that of the local teams, but at least it will be different. The Bolshoi, however, is something else. It offers the best available access to a repertory that for all its diversity shares a musical immediacy and a sensitivity to time and place unmatched in the Western repertory.

And indeed, those Russian operatic methods -- like the attention to physical and sensory reality -- might usefully be applied to non-Russian operas.

With her roly-poly face and placid acting, she failed decisively to project a visionary soldier-mystic. Kulko and Mr. Nikolsky repeated the impressions they made with Ms. Queler; the former is a monochromatic tenor with ringing top notes, the latter a stentorian darkbass.
