"The performance was billed as a gala concert and with the enthusiasm of the hometown crowd, not to mention the bright stage presence of Ms. Rallis herself, it was a high-spirited event. She treated her listeners to both opera and musical theatre, highlighting her substantial expressive range..."Song to the Moon" from Dvořák's Rusalka. This substantial piece brought forth impressive singing and was a highlight of the program. The character was effectively conveyed, and the long lines soared with lovely pure tone...Gershwin's "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess was a high point. This exquisite number was sung passionately by Ms. Rallis and with beautiful tone...Ms. Rallis is a fine artist and Wilmington will hear with eagerness about her growing professional success."
