« ...Russian soprano Elena Prokina took some surprising turns as Lina, Stiffelio’s guiltwracked wife. Her arias she took in an almost half-voice, pure and sweet, not using dynamics to expand the vocal drama.
Bur Prokina could cut loose with volume when she had to, such as her confrontation with Stiffelio. Her performance grew in stature over the evening; it had vocal texture a understanded, infecting theatricality. »
