…her performance was complete.”


In the title role, Elena Xanthoudakis was compelling,

effortlessly negotiating Donizetti’s challenging vocal writing
and acting powerfully as she did it.

…is unfailingly entertaining to watch and possesses an attractive and remarkably accurate voice.

This is a singer to keep an eye and ear out for, as I suspect we’ll be seeing a lot of her in years to come.

Especially memorable is Elena Xanthoudakis’s Pamina, voiced with shining tone and a fine appreciation of the music’s lyrical contours.

In the title role, Elena Xanthoudakis is a clear standout,

bravura coloratura flurries and stratospheric ascents
coupled with impressive carrying power.

Xanthoudakis is made for this sort of role:
she has a very beautiful voice and knows how to use it …
Donizetti on top form
