"Irini Tsirakidis, a Greek soprano with a lowish mezzo extension to her voice, takes on the role of Adagisa in more than competent fashion. She complements Papian well vocally and is an accomplished stage actress, though occasionally you may get the feeling she is restrained somewhat by the production itself. The duet "Mira, O Norma", rather like "Casta Diva", affect yet do not bring a tingle to my spine as other performances continue to do after years in their company."
