Great stylistic refinement - Stefano Bisacchi “Connected to the Opera”
“Great stylistic refinement is appreciated in Marily Santoro‘s Leonora. The young soprano born in Reggio Calabria is endowed with a voice of a beautiful color. She sings on the breath and the voice easily rises towards the well supported high notes and she scans well and phrases with great musicality, giving each phrase the right breath. Her Leonora is a girl in love who faces sacrifice with awareness and almost resignation, without high-sounding dramatic poses. There are no blurred parts in his reading: everything is controlled and clear and I think in the upcoming performances she can only improve his interpretation, which culminates in the great scene of the fourth act, entirety performed, in which she gives us acute notes in pianissimo, yet sounding always full and soft.”
