No Notes Found.
'Eaglen is magnificent as Puccini's eponymous anti-heroine in a fine addition to the Opera in English series.'
Gramophone

'Even more compelling is Jane Eaglen's magnificent and memorable account of the title role - emotional dramatic and musically incisive.'
Classic FM Magazine

'The glory of the new Chandos set is not just the spectacular wide-ranging sound, bringing out details never heard before, but the singing of Jane Eaglen in the title role.'
The Guardian
