    Anderson sang Norma in Toronto 3 years ago and was in great form. No high D at the end of first act but she had the high Cs. The voice is in very good shape and she sang beautifully throughout. She really caused quite a sensation. Her breath control was superb. She took some very slow tempi and showed she had the lung power to back them up.
