In her bright, silvery rendition of "Ah! Je veux vivre" from "Romeo et Juliette," she makes Juliet sound like a teenager. The effortless roulades, perfect trills and bell-like high notes of "Sempre libera" from "La Traviata" and the floating richness of her "Casta diva" from "Norma" are breathtaking . . . The unusual combination of vocal weight and agility made her legato singing especially lush and beautiful -- no chirping bel canto here. A "Caro nome" from "Rigoletto" . . . has even more color and roundness than the earlier performances, and she still hits the top notes exactly, delicately placing each one. And with "In questa reggia" from "Turandot" . . . Sutherland offers a new, fascinating level of dramatic engagement.
