thüringer allgemeine (2017)
«"Primavera" (=spring) is the first word uttered by the princess (Nikoleta Kapetanidou) and this is symptomatic of a new life, a new cycle of existence. A bright soprano, whose articulation of words is extremely precise to the point of becoming almost didascalic. The look of Kapetanidou is the punctum of this piece: sharp, filled with a power of reversal of death, this look is the breaking point of the enchantment".»
«"...beautiful voices are to be heard, like that of the princess, Nikoleta Kapetanidou, of great size and already well placed".»
