Elena Prokina - Natasha Rostova “ War and Peace”

Although Prokofiev’s opera is an ensamble wirk, one can’t help singing out Elena Prokina’s Natasha - a passionate, fresh performance, far removed from Erato’s matrony sounding Vishnevskaya, recorded too late in her career. Prokina’s Natasha and Alexander Gergalov’s Prince Andrey is a credible couple...”

John Allison, the Opera magazine, October 1993

“] touches of real excellence from especially Yelena Prokina, whose angelic appearence as Natasha makes the more steely side of her personality  a late-breaking surprise”

Yelena Prokina as Natasha gives a radiant performance on stage, touching hands movingly with Gegam Gregoriam’s ardent Pierre in the tense, heart-in-mouth sixth scene.
