Cio-Cio-San in MADAMA BUTTERFLY - Opera Narodowa Warszawa, March 2021

In this vocally and dramatically very demanding part, it was obvious that singing one of her dream roles gave the soprano an inexpressible pleasure. From the very first scene, Aleksandra Kurzak took over the audience's feelings. Sweet and incredibly girlish, charming with her extraordinary beauty, delighting with her technical fluency and timbre, she showed off her full vocal abilities in the captivating love duet with the tenor in the first act. In the farewell scene, she gave an overwhelming poignant performance that allowed the viewer to feel almost physically the emotions tormenting Butterfly.  by Magdalena Grzybowska for Opera Lovers.

Truly phenomenal, excellent Cio-Cio-San in terms of acting and vocally perfect. A committed understanding of the character, intense, moving and impressing performance. Aleksandra Kurzak tackles this very demanding part with great artistry and mastery but also simplicity. by Agnieszka Kledzik for Dziennik Teatralny Warszawa
