Stiffelio

Placido Domingo and Elena Prokina

« ...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. »

Scott Duncan.  « Domingo lifts L.A.’s ’Stiffelio’ »

The Orange Country Register, 10/09/1995

« And indeed, Domingo, Prokina, and Chernov sing wonderfully in this production.[ ] 

   Prokina, who made her American debut at LAMCO last season as Donna Anna in " Don Giovanni", possesses a powerful voice tempered with vulnerability. She is ideally suited to the opera like this one, yet one wishes she had more to do"

David Mermelstein. "Rare " Stiffelio" pleasing, but hardly awe-inspiring"

The current Los Angeles cast led by Placido Domingo as Stiffelio, Elena Prokina as his wandering wife and Vladimir Chernov as her outraged father - probably sung the opera better than it's ever done before'.
