"Hye Jung Lee may well be the reigning Olympia of her generation; the soprano retained her effortless projection, laser focus and sweet tone to the top of her high E-flats and beyond. (She added a couple of high Fs to her ornamentation.) Lee, in a silvery gown, came onstage harnessed to a crane, which, timed to her vocal leaps, repeatedly hoisted her into the stratosphere. It was an aptly jaw-dropping appearance, which she topped by gliding around the stage on in-line skates."
