CitiOpera’s mounting of this resplendent rarity has to be commended.”

“Eine echte Entdeckung war auch die griechisch-zypriotisch-australische Sopranistin Christiania Aloneftis, die sowohl als Persönlichkeit als auch mit ihrer farbenreichen Stimme über eine starke Ausstrahlung verfügt. Mitreißend etwa ihre bis in die höchsten Töne kraftvolle Darbietung der Arie „O mio babbino caro“ aus Giacomo Puccinis Oper „Gianni Schicchi“.

 EN: “A genuine discovery was the Greek-Cypriot Australian soprano, Christiana Aloneftis, who performed with a captivating stage presence, both in her personality and richly-coloured voice. Most impressive was her moving performance of “O mio babbino caro” from Giacomo Puccini’s opera, Gianni Schicchi, her high notes brilliant.
