CRITIC REVIEW:

[Verlet] was a gifted singer with a soprano leggiero of great beauty, a voice of astonishing flexibility and evenness. She was also a compelling actress of great charm. Critics repeatedly spoke of her fiorature, trills and ornamentation. Her upper range was unique in its purity and ability to sing trills effortlessly.
