«pulling off the lower parts in "Deh, vieni" (Figaro marriage), MaYan settled naturally in the shoes of the character - and it is no surprise to those who recall her performance in Don Giovanni's production last year. The gentle glow and all around grace that radiates from her voice makes the top of her voice as well especially beautiful.»
