Mezzo-Soprano

Oksana Volkova

“Most of the cast excels, especially Oksana Volkova as Tatiana’s sister Olga and Piotr Beczala as her fiancé, and Onegin’s friend and later enemy, Lenski. Both sang vibrantly and effortlessly and they were completely in character, with no sense that they were self-conscious about performing.”
New York Classical Review
