“Soprano Elaine Alvarez totally embodied Violetta. She expressed Violetta’s hopes with poignant lyricism in reflective passages. In duets with Alfredo, her ardent lover, she unleashed white-hot vocalism, snarling when defying his wishes. Exploring a wide range of tonal colors, she eloquently phrased melodies, incorporating trills and runs seamlessly into her lines. She provided the most breathtaking moments of the evening in arias that sent chills down the spine.”
