…in rich supple-voiced splendour
In the title role, Elena Xanthoudakis was compelling,
…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,
Elena Xanthoudakis as Gilda is dazzling.Xanthoudakis has it all…above all, the notes.
Xanthoudakis is made for this sort of role:she has a very beautiful voice and knows how to use it …Donizetti on top form– and Pia’s death is genuinely tragic.
Great stuff. 5 stars
