At least Wagner has delicate woodwind to paint Ada’s otherness, in the manner if not the matter of Brünnhilde’s humiliation in Act Three of Die Walküre. All eyes and ears, though, are on the soprano who has to manage her absurdly long and broken-backed Act Two aria in which she resolves to sacrifice immortality for love.Young New Zealander Kirstin Sharpin rose jaw-droppingly to the challenge. The luminous warmth enveloping her dramatic-soprano strength will make Sharpin a fabulous Straussian.

Ada is rather like a Queen of Night on anabolic steroids: the New Zealander Kirstin Sharpin was laser bright and well-nigh indefatigable.
