Norena characterizes Juliette as a real teenager: her singing is full of wide-eyed wonder and hope until the tragic dénouement. Hackett declaims Roméo's music with a beauty of legato tone and an amplitude of phrasing which is rarely heard today. Their duets are the highlights of the performance, which is as it should be.
