“Claycomb, at her entrance, has the opera’s most familiar extract, the exquisite cavatina, “O quante volte,” musing on how many times she has asked heaven for her Romeo. It’s a haunting melody, and this remarkable soprano shaped the phrases with infinite nuances of meaning. Claycomb’s light soprano is flexible yet penetrating, her technique unfailing in accomplishing her dramatic and musical ends. She was even more moving in the later, less-known aria where she begs her unrelenting father for a final embrace.”
