    I saw her onstage only twice–both at the MET as the Marschallin in Rosenkavalier. The first time was in the old production the year of her MET debut. When she unleashed “In Gottes namen!” at the end of the third act trio, it was the largest, most radiant sound I had ever heard come out of a human throat.
