*in preparation

With her rich, shiny mezzo and emotional intensity Ms Kolosova was immediately a flesh-and-blood Isoletta. Her heartfelt rejected bride aria was one of the few moments when this mostly earthbound performance took flight

Opera Today

A voice that is never full of itself or harsh but supple, distinctly coloured, and technically versed – a tremendous discovery
