"The glamorous, imperious soprano Marie-Eve Munger perhaps didn’t quite look the part of a pious martyr, but her exquisite singing all but transported one to heaven. Munger’s sound shimmered as she sang the lovely, often poignant, arias that Handel composed for Theodora. The expressiveness of her singing was enhanced through the graceful ornamentation with which she adorned the reprises of the melodies in the da capo arias. . . The surprise was that Munger and Costanzo, so dissimilar in temperament and voice, were as one in their duets together."
