G. ROSSINI "IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA" [ROSINA], 18, 21 MAY 2019, VIENNA STATE OPERA, AUSTRIA«It seems like “The Barber of Seville” by Rossini, given on the stage of the Vienna State Opera on the occasion of its 150th anniversary, must’ve become the proof that the troupe’s members and the world celebrities are able to match each other. If this intention meant the answer to the question whether the voice of one of the troupe’s members could compare with the elegance of coloraturas of the best tenor of modern times, then last Saturday Margarita gave the answer to it.
Not only in duet with Juan Diego Flórez, her aria of Rosina deserves to be streamed directly on the internet all across the world tomorrow. This love couple meets all vocal and comedy preconditions that are capable to turn the evening in the opera house into an extremely amusing event.
(…) This Count Almaviva found himself a worthy countess in coquettish, sly and ardent Rosina presented on the stage by Margarita Gritskova who showed incredible flexibility in all registers of her melodious mezzo-soprano. The fact that she is a member of the theatre’s troupe is a true gift for the anniversary, which the State Opera has managed to present to itself and its audience».
