CRITIC REVIEWS:

“Borkh was one of the great heldensoprans of the 1950s and 1960s. A consummate singing-actress with a distinctive voice and a strikingly beautiful woman, Borkh made her mark on the pages of opera history as a stunning Salome and Elektra.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, July/Aug., 2007



[Borkh] was a Teutonic Callas – hysterical, a wild beast in every sense, but a brilliant singer.

- Georg Solti, MEMOIRS, p.76



"In a field long dominated by Europeans, Ms. Thebom was part of the first midcentury wave of American opera singers to attain international careers. Associated with the Met from the mid-1940s to the mid-1960s, she was praised by critics for her warm voice, attentive phrasing and sensitive acting."
