Perhaps the evening’s most delightful moment was the return of soprano Tracy Dahl, whose pinpoint coloratura and silvery tone has not been heard at the War Memorial Opera House since (checks the archives) 1999. But there she was again, romping through “Je suis Titania” from Ambroise Thomas’ “Mignon” with all her wellremembered accuracy and pixieish charm intact. You couldn’t listen to her sing and not feel glad that Merola had given a talent like hers its start.
