ApeMusicale Review – Rigoletto HGO

“Il ruolo di Gilda è stato reso in maniera adeguata dal soprano ucraino Uliana Alexyuk: fragile e vulnerabile nella sua caratterizzazione, dopo un inizio un po’ freddo è cresciuta in intensità fino alla sua aria “Caro nome”, in cui ha mostrato coloratura, flessibilità e luminosità vocale.”

L’oeil et l’oreille

par André Tubeuf
