Amina’s Leap of Faith…

Review by Alexis Spanides at

On the other end of the spectrum Vassiliki Karayanni proved once again her artistry and her inner musicianship. Her portrayal of Amina had many psychological levels, she is a girl, but she is also strong, willful and a more complicated personality than it seems at the surface. Her singing brought to out the complexity of the character, it’s subtle nuances, it’s emotional rollercoaster all expressed through the music and impeccably sung proving once again what a great singer and artist she really is. Her “ah non credea mirarti” was sung aux bout du souffle with exquisite pianissimos and a lyrical melodic line. The final cabaletta gave her the chance to display her impeccable coloratura, and her strong high notes. A memorable performance in all counts.
