  1. I’ve heard of Calaf being the unknown Prince but here we have the unknown cast member. One would think that Ms Kurzak’s vocal range and nationality, as well as the name of her role, are unknown, as they are not stated, although those facts are listed for the other cast members. It’s not evident why she is referenced only as being Mr. Alagna’s wife. Nevertheless, I’m thrilled it will be streamed – a big thank you to the ROH.

  2. I see you have now added Ms Kurzak’s voice type and role to the singer information included. Thank you!
