Olga Mykytenko as Minni

in "La fanciulla del west" by Puccini

under conducting of José Cura

Premiere at the Estonian National Opera on September 21, 2018

„Minnie's role was played by Olga Mykytenko from Ukraine. Even though the lonely and love awaiting Minnie is one of the main storylines, it seemed to remain in the background during the first act. However it was understood that Mykytenko's performance was well thought through and precisely constructed. She managed to play a woman in love as well as a woman in despair ignoring the men's presents in her character. Especially powerful was a moment in her performance when she wins Rance through a lie in order to save herself and her lover.“
