«As she stepped on stage, Xenia Ganz filled the whole space with her presence and made it hers. From the very first notes, her warm and rich voice enchanted the audience and it is with ease and serenity that she could reveal all the facets of her voice throughout the evening. Whether portraying a passionate Nelly (Adelson e Salvini from Bellini), a fiery Carmen (Carmen from Bizet) or the gentleman Smeton (Anna Bolena from Donizetti), Xenia Ganz reveals a stunning vocal ability and a sophisticated dramatic interpretation.”»
