    Richly deserved. She is superb!

  • Edgar Brenninkmeyer says:

    Nadine will set La Fenice on fire – musically, of course :-). She did so a few years ago during the New Year Concerts, one of which I attended. Brava!

  • John Porter says:

    I heard her when she was a student at Mannes. She’s already a star.
