Adina in L'ELISIR D'AMORE - Opera National de Paris, November 2015
Aleksandra Kurzak’s Adina, playful and mischievous, lacks neither charm nor spicy. Her tone is fruity, her top notes bright and her vocalizations preformed with taste. The singer portrays an endearing character and the couple she forms with her partner is perfectly matched. Her aria of the 2nd Act, "Prendi per me sei libero" sung in halftone is a treat. At the final curtain, she got from the audience a very warm and well deserved welcome for her debut at the Paris Opera
Foum Opera - Christian Peter
The purest beauty, finesse, rightness, came from Aleksandra Kurzak, Polish soprano greatly familiar with bel canto: her freshness, the softness of her crystal clear and gently musical voice make from her one of the finest current performer of the Romantic repertoire. We follow her career with a great interest, particularly her forthcoming Lucia di Lammermoor, wondering when she will more address Bellini, as she owns the melancholy phrasing for that.

The five singers are all amazing. Roberto Alagna plays the clown and the desperate poor guy with much happiness. We laugh at seeing him on the ground, arms outstretched, claiming he wants to follow his sweetheart that threatens to run over him. Alongside him, Aleksandra Kurzak is sparkling and playful. We would like their last duo continues and continues again.
...Aleksandra Kurzak, radiant as Adina, hilarious coquettish ingenue, clearly at ease to simper, but can also become often moving and sometimes mocking, when she mimic the poor Nemorino. She succeeded in the most difficult thing: to make us forget the difficulties of the role. The complicity of the couple star, much anticipated, gives a rare freshness to the whole and is transmitted to the rest of the cast.
CHRONIQUE par Damien pour Olyrix
Newest is Aleksandra Kurzak, whom we loved so much as Maria Stuarda at the Champs Elysées Theatre last spring, and whom Roberto Alagna loves very palpably even more! Her voice is round, pretty, not huge, her vocal line exquisite as well as her style. Her humour is smart, with a huge charm and naturalness on stage. Above all, she radiates with the most precious gift on stage: the pleasure of singing, which instantly warms up the audience (even even the vast and metallic hall of Bastille ...

Special mention also to the one who, on stage plays his love, soprano Aleksandra Kurzak. She made her debut at the Paris Opera. Her presence, her contagious exuberant mischief, and of course her voice, as agile as velvety conquered the audience. Nice performance for this singer who is Roberto Alagna’s everyday life companion.
Dominique Poncet – Le grain de sel
Aleksandra Kurzak, who makes her debut at the Opera of Paris received a standing ovation for her talent and her beautiful soprano voice. [...] Frankly, I'm looking around for a little reproach, I have absolutely nothing to criticize [...]. To prove how much I loved it, I'm ready to go back several times before the end of this series of performances.
Guy Courtheoux – OnSortOuPas.fr
Tremendous success for Roberto Alagna and his partner Aleksandra Kurzak, a tiptop cast.
New on the vast set of the Bastille Opera, Polish soprano Aleksandra Kurzak moves on stage with a provocative and sexy confidence. With a perfect voice and amazing vocalizations, the beautiful brunette, we have already much admired as Maria Stuarda at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, performed very well. Spicy charm and mischievous spontaneity supported by a pretty impeccable musical technique, she forms a delicious pair with Alagna where seduction meets the artistic harmony.
Hélène Kuttner - Artistikrezo.com
Aleksandra Kurzak made her debut at the Paris Opera. She is very good. Her Adina - beautiful voice, beautiful breath control - has the Latin fieriness... She also proves to be an excellent actress.
Bertrand Renard - Culturebox
...With her temperament of a communicative petulance, and especially her voice of an ideal agility for the bel canto, Aleksandra Kurzak, future Mrs. Alagna, is off to a sensational start at the Paris Opera.
Dominique Poncet - Culture-tops.fr and Atlantico.fr
Aleksandra Kurzak reveals the extent of stunning means in the duet "Una parola o Adina": her tone is gorgeous, well sustained and generous, her agility is flawless. Her confession aria "Prendi per me sei libero" turns out to be a great moment of bel canto. The actress is disarming, and the alchemy with her companion in life is just perfect.
