"Joyce El-Khoury, makes the strongest impression as Micaëla,
José’s pure-hearted old flame. Too often a make-weight nonentity,
this Micaëla compels our sympathy with her unaffected, floating soprano.
El-Khoury possesses the rare gift of art that conceals art,
making music seem to flow generously from the heart.
And she has an understated messa di voce to die for."
