"Suzan Hanson, an extraordinary soprano sings the part of the Nagasaki bride Cio-cio-san. Hanson's range is as expansive as her acting ability, and that is huge. her presence on the stage , where she sings nearly nonstop in the second act, enhances the performance of those around her. Hers is a mesmerizing portrayal of a hapless, hopeful bride in an informal marriage tradition at the end of its days."
