E. Prokina as Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni in LA Opera, 1995

« Russian soprano Elena Prokina makes an impressive Los Angeles debut as Donna Anna. Her voice is capable of supple phrasing but can turn steely with resolution when the music calls for it. She navigates the pyrotechnical demands of the aria  » Non mi dir » with a high degree of coloratura finesse »

Jim Farber  »L.A. Music Center Opera stages memorable ’Giovanni’.

Sir Thomas Allen as Don Giovanni, Elena Prokina as Donna Anna

« The women in this production also impress. Elena Prokina’s Donna Anna is just right, reserved but impassioned. The soprano’s silky voice conveys innocence but is tensile enough to express rage as well »

David Mermelstein.  »Of Gloom And Doom »( LAMCO’s  Dark Giovanni improves with age.
