This is the first of two Valente Ilia broadcasts, and she is excellent. Behrens’ Elettra is not to my taste. Both Vaness and Studer are much more to my liking. Levine does very fine work here and deserves credit for solidly putting this work in the Met repertory. Valente is under-represented on MOoD (only Nanetta in Falstaff) and still catches the ensemble in its first year of the new production.This is the first of two Valente Ilia broadcasts, and she is excellent.
