Reviews

"Our host for the evening and Director of Talents of the World, Olga Lisovskaya, had us on the edge of our seat with "O Luce di Quest'Anima" from Donizetti's Linda di Chamounix. She possesses a formidable instrument of great beauty and impressive coloratura technique, including a trill to kill." (Voce di Meche, Talents of the World Festival at Carnegie Hall, 2019)


"Lisovskaya embraced Cunegonde’s “Glitter and be gay” with panache,  tongue-in-cheek self-pity in spoken segments, and wonderful  incandescence in high-lying phrases. In this aria, she was truly “Queen  of the top E-flats!” (Boston Musical Intelligencer about Olga Lisovskaya's performance at Jordan Hall, 2019)


"Soprano Olga Lisovskaya brought beautifully limpid sounds to Micaela’s  music, her voice soaring to the climaxes of her third-act aria. It was  an interpretation sympathetic and heartwarming, her interaction with Don  José caressing." (Boston Musical Intelligencer, 2019)


"Soprano voice, which is clear and perfectly formed" (Boston Musical Intelligencer)
 

"The highest level of vocal performance together with the wonderful  artistic play and personal charisma of Olga Lisovskaya... created the  magical atmosphere of musical feast." (Melrose Free Press)
 

"Olga Lisovskaya has a lovely voice and delighted us with some dazzling  coloratura in Juliette's waltz "Ah, je veux vivre" from the opera by  Gounod. This is a pleasing sound with lovely phrasing and some  impressive expansion at the top of the register. " (Carnegie Hall, Voce  di Meche)
 

"A move towards vivaciousness came when Olga Lisovskaya took to the  stage to sing “Je Veux Vivre,” from Gounod’s “Romeo et Juliette.” The  accompaniment kicked into the bouncing waltz after Lisovskaya delivered  the opening run of coloratura with a resolute gladness. Swaying with the  rhythm, she waltzed her way to the aria’s passionate heights with a  series of upward melismas. As she sustained the sounds of the closing  phrases, the rhythm of the accompaniment briefly slowed, like the  heartbeat of someone finally catching their breath, until Lisovskaya  capped off the aria with a triumphant vocal climax..."
