'Lise Lindstrom is pretty much the ideal Ice Princess: her voice one of steely intensity. In the Riddle Scene she flutters over Calaf with vampiric sadism, yet also conveys Turandot’s uncertainty and misdirected emotions. Mario Berti as Calaf has a clarion voice and dignified presence, radiating a grim courage that suggests he is driven by humanity as well as passions.' Michael Scott Rohan
