"Roberta Peters' Susanna is delicious in the pert and sassy rather than vaguely vindictive manner, much in keeping with the overall mood, and it is beautifully sung, with a "Deh vieni" to remember." (ClassicsToday.com)

"Roberta Peters' Susanna is delicious in the pert and sassy rather than vaguely vindictive manner, much in keeping with the overall mood, and it is beautifully sung, with a "Deh vieni" to remember. Same for Cesare Siepi's Figaro. His tone is round and alluring, even with some early pitch problems, but good-natured and charming and almost never angry. He throws some emphasis into a phrase near the end of "Aprite un po'..." but reverts immediately to golden sound rather than vivid characterization."
