Hire Gelena Gaskarova ›
«Presque tous issus de la troupe du Mariinski de Saint-Pétersbourg, les chanteurs, jamais entendus à Toulouse, forment une distribution solide, dominée par Gelena Gaskarova, grande voix droite et solide, excellente à la fois dans la fragilité et la détermination de la Princesse Iolanta»
altamusica.com Théâtre du Capitole, Toulouse Le 02/04/2010 Olivier BRUNEL (2017)
«On aime la sensibilité de la soprano Gelena Gaskarova, fine Iolanta au chant nuancé et musical.»
Anne-Marie Chouchan ,LaDepeche.fr (2017)
«Celle-ci a les traits et la voix de la rayonnante Gelena Gaskarova, émission aux attraits discrets transcendée par un chant de haute école, des grâces infinies, autant que par un physique de top model.»
