  • DESDEMONA IN VERDI'S OTELLO

    "Elisa Balbo gives a startling performance, her Desdemona is quivering and expressive while alive, absolutely credible at the point of death: consummate and docile actress with thrilling pianissimos and a lyric soprano voice enriched by thousands of variegations."
    Alberto Spano "L'Ape musicale"


    "The ethereal Desdemona sung by Elisa Balbo, is credibly young in her beauty. She conveys a great humanity enriched by nuanced vibrations, creating a character of great emotional impact. The Willow Song is one of the most touching moments.”
    Claudia Mambelli “L’opera” - December 2018

    "Astonishing is Elisa Balbo as Anna Erissio. The very young singer has already acquired an admirable technical and performing maturity. Her dark and velvety voice is ideal for this repertoire. Her very wide vocal range allows her to face a tremendously hard tessitura and her coloratura is precise and her elocution is clear and authoritative. ... she faces the authentic ordeal of the final scene with such a self-confidence that is hardly believable for such a young girl."
    Giordano Cavagnino - "GB Opera"
