Anyone lucky enough to have seen Kiri Te Kanawa in one of her great Mozart roles knows that this performance is a treasure. As Fiordiligi, one of the two sisters unknowingly being tested by their fiancées, Te Kanawa pulled at our heartstrings even while she was making us laugh. Nothing in the bravura vocal writing, with its fiendish runs and jumps, was too much for her creamy, exquisite voice. Diana Montague is her sister and fellow victim of their love interests, played by David Rendall and Håkan Hagegård

Kiri Te Kanawa is sensational as the Marschallin, one of the most beloved characters in all of opera. When her young aristocratic lover Octavian (the magnificent Tatiana Troyanos) delivers the ceremonial silver rose to Sophie (Judith Blegen), the fiancée of their country cousin, Baron Ochs (Aage Haugland), the two young people fall instantly in love. But before they can be happily united, complications both hilarious and melancholy ensue. James Levine expertly leads the Met Orchestra in one of Strauss's most ravishingly beautiful scores

Giuseppe Verdi's Otello: In what many believe to be the finest production of Othello in modern times, Plácido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead a world-class cast under the exquisite musical direction of Sir Georg Solti. An outstanding performance of the first of Verdi's two late Shakespearian operas, universally regarded as sublime masterpieces of grand opera. Placido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead an outstanding cast in this production of Giuseppe Verdi's operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Othello. The moor Otello (Domingo), proclaimed a hero after a great military victory, is driven by jealousy to murder when his devious comrade-in-arms Iago (Sergei Leiferkus) leads him (without cause) to doubt the fidelity of his wife, Desdemona (Te Kanawa). Georg Solti conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, under the leadership of Bradley Creswick
