Dorota Szczepańska - sopran liryczna koloratura


Dorota Szczepańska in the role of Galatea shone with a rare maturity of vocal freedom, her beautiful soprano, full of many colors, was able to express all the nuances of the role, from the obsession of falling in love to the desperation of despair. The artist uses a wonderful belcanto, effectively finding herself in the Baroque style, although her voice is ready to create stronger parts, probably without losing the sweetness and technique of expression. It was a great creation also because the singer was able to make this part more dynamic from the dramatic side.
— Tomasz Pasternak „Orfeo”
