Yes, I heard her at the Opera Bastille in a staged performance of Berlioz's
LA DAMNATION DE FAUST by Luca Ronconi a little over a year ago. It was
that production taken to Paris from Turin or Bolognia, not sure which. I
know it is not an opera but ever since Harry Kupfer staged it more or less
successfully for Brussels, I believe, everyone is staging it now.
Sam Ramey and Jerry Hadley were also in the cast. I didn't find her all
that impressive...a rather dowdy looking singer...vocally, nothing very
special. I happened to run into Herbert Breslin at the intermission at the
Bastille and he said that she would be coming to the Met to sing CARMEN. I
had the imrpession that he was going to represent her.
