Anastasia Kalagina’s weightless, crystal-like and yet, at the same time, heartfelt and warm voice and her commanding position, not just vocally but generally as a musician, make one convinced that true Mozart is possible on the Russian stage too.


Anastasia Kalagina as Madame Cortese impressed with the precision of her coloratura.

As the title character, Anastasia Kalagina’s bright sound exuded radiance, and easily navigated the role’s occasional Rossini-like fireworks.
