Reviews

"María Zapata interpretó a Donna Elvira con un chorro de voz espectacular y definiendo a su personaje con un gran realismo. Magnífica."
Francisco García Rosado
OperaWorld
Sorprendente la presencia vocal de la asturiana afincada en Madrid María Zapata como Anna, en un breve papel en el que sin embargo supo lucir en sus cortas intervenciones, mostrando un importante material de muy agradable color en su frase "Deh fratelli perdonate" del segundo acto, así como sobresaliendo en cada uno de los concertantes, especialmente en el "Immenso Jehovà" del cuarto acto. Como anécdota, apuntar que además de los aplausos del público, recibió también el de sus excompañeros del Coro de la Ópera de Oviedo"
