Adriana Ferfecka shone brightest in the title role and is striking in her interpretation and authenticity. Pain, suffering, a sense of rejection and despair pushing her to take her own life – she was able to express all of this with a gesture, glance, stage movement, and above all, her voice.– Suor Angelica, (BeataFisher.com)
