In Review: Jennifer Zetlan and Lidiya Yankovskaya in "Ellen West" with the Prototype Festi
"Lidiya Yankovskaya brilliantly led the orchestral accompaniment, finding meaning in every gesture. . .
The central pillar of the production is Jennifer Zetlan’s captivating performance as Ellen. . . her firm soprano has a way of grabbing the listener’s attention and not letting go. Titles were projected above the stage, but they were hardly needed, as Zetlan’s delivery brought intention and clarity to every syllable. From beginning to end, she disappeared entirely into the painful psychology of her character" -NY Classical Review
"The soprano Jennifer Zetlan copes tirelessly in the title role. . . Lidiya Yankovskaya fluently conducts a string quartet, bass and piano." -Financial Times
