“Per un verso ha trovato in Christina Poulitsi un soprano di coloratura che ha sostituito la prevista Olga Peretyatko studiando in una settimana la gorgheggiante e acuta parte dell’Usignolo, realizzandola in modo impeccabile e trasmettendo il senso dell’opera, in cui il canto dell’uccello vince la Morte e riporta alla vita l’Imperatore della Cina, variante fiabesca dell’archetipo, anche orfico, della musica salvifica”.
“Greek soprano Christina Poulitsi was excellent as Queen of the Night. Her voice has body , and she is remarkable in coloratura, hitting the top notes without any problem. There’s no question that she is one of the best interpreters of the character today”.
“The international rising soprano Christina Poulitsi sang the popular arias of the Queen of the Night, Gilda and Rosina. Her lyric warm color, beautiful presence and her scenic ethos impressed the audience , which applauded warmly the young soprano. The highly difficult aria of the Queen of the Night was performed with secure and accurate coloratura. “Caro nome” was vocally splendid and dramatically apt, giving to the character an essential innocence and sincerity(a role,which she recently sang under the baton of Mo Mehta in Florence). The spicy and decisive Rosina , was performed with updated stylistically variations, which prove her apprenticeship at the Accademia Rossiniana at Pesaro”
“Christina Poulitsi married command of the tessitura with an unusual opulence of voice that caught the resonance of the acoustic thrillingly””
“Christina’s Poulitsi voice opened out in clear, ringing tones. Her runs were fluid and effortless and the coloratura precise, in tune and full bodied. In the second act her aria ‘Der Hölle Rache’, she demonstrated the same technical ease and an added dramatic thrust.”
