Norina in DON PASQUALE - Opernhaus Zürich, January 2016

Aleksandra Kurzak's Norina is a deliciously devious thing. [...] She warmed up the demands of her role as the opera progressed, and I was glad to see her turn her repertoire of standard coy mannerisms into something more three-dimensional. Her vehement anger was inevitably “closer to home” in a small opera house such as Zurich’s, and in the wonderful quartet in Act II, she shone above the three male principals like a bright beacon.
