Reviews for Elektra at Aix-en-Provence 2013


"Chéreau’s attention to detail did not end with the principle characters. It is hard to remember a production in which the fifth maid’s defense of Elektra has been as movingly and clearly expressed as it was here in the magnificent singing of soprano Roberta Alexander." Opera News October 2013


"Il confère comme jamais aux rôles secondaires une fonction et une épaisseur, à l'image de la bouleversante cinquième servante de Roberta Alexander." Le Figaro


"Dans les rôles secondaires, on retiendra l’émouvante cinquième servante de Roberta Alexander"


"Par la beauté picturale d’un geste soudain pétrifié, qui courbe les silhouettes des servantes – bouleversante Roberta Alexander"


"Una menzione speciale per  Roberta Alexander di cui gli acuti e la linea musicale ci fanno apprezzare questa voce di soprano dalle tinte calde e dal bel vibrato."


"Saluons toutefois l'excellence de Roberta Alexander, attendrissante nourrice, seule femme à prendre la défense d'Elektra et qui reçoit en échange les coups des autres."
