Covered Covered & Performed Scenes Premiere of New Work Concert
01 Un bel di vedremo
02 Act 2 Prayer- Jenufa
Canadian soprano Mariya Krywaniuk, singing with lusty, loud passion- 'One fine day'- certainly did what it should. Peter Reed- Opera
Mariya Krywaniuk as Butterfly / Cio-Cio San stole the show. Whilst a leading soprano’s appearance is not always important if her voice is good enough, in this case it was good to see a young singer who could convey all the vulnerability of a fifteen-year old trying to be as adult as she can, after being thrust into a truly alien situation. Mariya Krywaniuk’s voice is very delicate and pure and was at its absolute best in ‘One Fine Day / Un Bel Dì.’ Bill Kenny- Seen and Heard International
She is beautiful and sexy, passionate and in some ways childlike (as Cio Cio San). She is a true operatic personality- and Butterfly hardly needs any other. Michael Tanner- The Spectator
