ELENA GARANCA is that rare artist that actually improves her performances, performance to performance. Besides that sultry beauty, she commands a formidable acting and singing technique
which she employs to communicate with intelligence and a keen perception of characterization that never loses credibility. She IS a major superstar. Long may she continue to excite audiences with her talent. Kudos to her !!! Do not miss her "Met" performances this week and next week if you can manage to attend !
