Superb reviews for Yana Kleyn in Metz.


The reviewers where ecstatic about Yana Kleyn as Mimì at Théâtre de Metz Métropole.
Here are a few excerpts:

-      Yvan Beuvard –

  "...a great lyric soprano in amazing ways. (She) has everything: the timbre, a wide vocal range, the broadest dynamic palette as well as physical and real dramatic presence.
...A powerful voice that knows how to use mezza voce and has the pianissimos of dreams, with a rare breath length...

A name to remember."

 Albert Dacheux –
"her extraordinary qualities as a lyric soprano in perfect match with the work of Puccini...
Yana Kleyn certainly shows herself in the best light. "Rodolfo m'ama", then the "Donde lieta" were they ever better sung?

-      Charles Arden –

"Yana Kleyn's Mimi illuminates the stage, the orchestra pit and the hall with a complete voice and a marvelous stage presence

The vibrant vibrato is a measurement of what her voice has in harmonics and character. A complete voice, that supports the guttural intensity up to and including her radiating treble.

Her voice has a multitude of colors, exploding into a tornado or projecting clear as an ice crystal. Immediately when she sings, there is a sweet and intoxicating fragrance of flowers.
The expressive intensity of the voice, the calm pianissimos and controls of all spectrums of nuances can fill any large opera house."

Strong reviews as Desdemona
Riitta-Leena Lempinen-Veta from Itä-Savo writes about Yana Kleyn's Desdemona in 2016 at Savonlinna Festival:

“Yana Kleyn’s Desdemona is sensitive and girly, like Shakespeare’s writing requires. The tenderness of the very young girl comes alive especially in the Piangea cantando, where Kleyn feasted with extremely sensitive nuances. The very quiet parts of her performance expressed the held-back agony and fear of death in a touching manner. There is also power and melody in her voice when needed, and her voice keeps its warmth and agility even when using this power.”
