Only a quarter-century after Lucia's premiere, this was a performance featuring one of the leading dramatic sopranos of the day, certainly not the light coloratura-style soprano who often sang the part later on.

Indeed, Tietjens concluded the evening by adding a demanding solo from one of her most famous roles, Leonore's great scena 'Abscheulicher!' from Fidelio.
