Music Review: 'Tibor Rudas Presents the Three Sopranos: Cassello, Esperian, Lawrence' (1996)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Classical

Divas-in-the-making Kallen Esperian, Cynthia Lawrence, and Kathleen Cassello may not carry the same clout as Pavarotti, Domingo, and Carreras, but that's not stopping impresario Rudas from trying to pull off another classics-for-the-masses coup, as he did with The Three Tenors. The game sopranos are all in lovely voice on Tibor Rudas Presents the Three Sopranos: Cassello, Esperian, Lawrence, but the project's formula — sound-bite arias from popular operas and operettas alongside show-tune standards and a ''Latin'' medley — feels a bit too calculated for comfort. B+
