Any listener on whichever side of the fence who keeps any sort of open mind...must recognize this historic [CD] as superb entertainment and great music-making on every level, with an emotional impact closely akin to that of a Puccini opera and an intensity of excitement to match anything from disco to The Rite of Spring.... The beauty of [Te Kanawa's] voice, its combination of richness, delicacy and purity, consistently brings out the musical strengths of Bernstein's inspiration.... Similarly with Jose Carreras as Tony it is self-evident to point out how such a voice brings out the pure beauty of the big melodies like ''Maria'' or ''Tonight."
