    "Elisa Balbo’s rendition of Micaela is modern in her intentions and in the direct and frills-free singing, surprising for her ease even in the most arduous extremes of the tessitura. She is for once a worthy antagonist and not just a mere totem of the angelic woman." Daniela Goldoni - Operaclick

"The voice of pure lyric soprano is very beautiful, bright in the upper register and filled with velvety pianissimos, that shine gracefully."
