Lina Tetriani press reviews
“...one sensational full-out scene and aria for the heroine, Magda Sorel, which won extended, deserved applause for lovely, sympathetically vulnerable Georgian soprano Lina Tetriani...Her strong lyric soprano, darkly shaded,.....Tetriani is an excellent artist, providing a winning dramatic fulcrum.”
"Georgian soprano Lina Tetriani, who headed the cast as Magda, was perhaps the top star of the entire 2007/08 Season. A young woman of gentle beauty, she was equally convincing as the successful courtesan and as a woman experiencing great love for the first time. As both she was painfully vulnerable, and her delivery of the first-act confessional self-confrontation competed favorably with recordings by established divas.” Opera Today, Wes Blomster, April 23, 2008.
“.....the singing of the cast is thrilling. Lina Tetriani was tiny, yet a powerhouse as Magda [Sorel, The Consul], ready to move Heaven and earth to save her family,…The scene in which she finally erupts in frustration and anger absolutely stopped the show, and left the audience exhausted from their involvement in her performance.” Robert W. Plyler, Jamestown Post Journal, Friday, July 24, 2009
