Miss Randazzo imparted grace, a vital though trifle demure winsomeness, and a refinement of emotion to the role which it has always required and too seldom been accorded. And her voice, ah, the voice: it is a lovely, vibrant soprano, with clarity and brightness in the upper reaches, warmth lower down, and smooth pianissimos and easily sustained, elongated phrases. To use an overworked cinematic press agents phrase, Miss Randazzo left no doubt that she WAS Violetta”. The Bridgeport Post
