Giuseppe Verdi, Premiere “La Forza del Destino”, [debut in the role of Preziosilla]

“And then there is the mezzo-soprano Margarita Gritskova, who is outstanding in every respect, who sweeps across the stage as a Preziosilla almost in “Carmen” fashion (a good director’s idea!) And also burns off a fireworks vocal.”
“Kurier” Perer Jarolin , 5.07.2021

“Margarita Gritskova playing the part of Preziosilla has become a real pleasure for the spectators’ eyes and ears. Her powerful and clear mezzo-soprano in all its height has become the evening’s apotheosis.”
“Online Merker” Johannes Marksteiner, 4.07.2021

“How did this musical piece, whose staging had failed at times even in famous theaters, sound in Klosterneuburg? It was just heavenly! Above all, this epithet refers to Margarita Gritskova, whose enchanting power in the role of Preziosilla cannot be called other than the force of nature. With her stunning voice she performs the best “Rataplan” of all that can be
“Wiener Zeitung” Edwin Baumgartner, 6.07.2021

“Margarita Gritskova, a mezzo-soprano singer from Saint Petersburg, has become a real star, who has long since lived and worked in Vienna. She has performed the starring role of Preziosilla and managed to mesmerize the spectators with her posture, dancing and a gorgeous coloratura soprano. When Margarita is conquering the stage, casting different choral groups into shade, the spectators have a keen feeling of what is happening!”
“Online Merker” Sieglinde Pfabigan, 10.07.2021

“Margarita Gritskova in the role of Preziosilla is just marvelous, but the most remarkable thing is the clarity of high notes that she takes.”
“Die Presse” Josef Schmitt

“All the vocal performances are wonderful, but Margarita Gritskova, who has managed to play a perfect Preziosilla, is particularly good.”
“Kronen Zeitung” Florian Krenstetter, 8.07.2021

“Some vocals are simply amazing. Margarita Gritskova, who has played the part of Preziosilla, demonstrates a considerable vitality that adds up a vertiginous counterpoint to resignation to fate dominating her role.”
“Salzburger Nachrichten”,

“Above all things, Margarita Gritskova (playing the part of Preziosilla) was coquettishly tearing up the stage in the style of an unfettered Carmen.”
“DerStandard” Ljubiša Tošic 5.07.2021

“Margarita Gritskova is the ideal performer of the part of Preziosilla, a gipsy girl, Margarita’s appearance and voice is a real delight for spectators.”
“Neues Volksblatt OÖ”, Ingo Rickl

“Undoubtedly, Preziosilla played by Margarita Gritskova, has managed to approach it! Her mezzo-soprano, for which, as it seems, there are neither upper nor lower limits, has allowed Margarita to cope brilliantly with this rather unrewarding role, which had at times brought bad luck to some of her celebrated colleagues, and had sometimes made the spectators feel embarrassed for the performer – bravo! Until now, of all the many performers in “The Force of Destiny” I have seen, there were only three who managed to be irrevocably convincing – Luciana D’Intino, Bruna Baglioni and Kristina Kolar – now there are four of them!”
