Washington National Opera - Eugene Onegin - Tatiana, March 2019

The sensation of WNO’s cast is Anna Nechaeva, who made an outstanding U.S. debut as Tatiana. The Russian soprano had all of the vocal qualities for the role, and she imbued the Act I Letter Aria with innocence, passion, and dreaminess. The power of the performance came just as much from her acting abilities, making the character both vulnerable and exalted. Towering strength came later in Act III, when she finally put Onegin in his place, singing  with a more mature vocal presence.

- Charles T. Downey, Washington Classical ReviewRead the article

Washington National Opera did indeed “discover” a Tatiana for our times in the ravishing Anna Nechaeva, whose voice is as expressive and lovely as her form.  She is the real deal, a singing-actress of keenly honed talent and stage presence, who at one moment timidly darts across the stage like a startled bird, then buoyantly leaps up onto a bed like a jubilant child. She holds nothing back in her portrayal of youthful warmth and romantic fervor, then makes the whole auditorium feel her anguish and humiliation at the hands of a careless man. But she endures and keeps a loving heart so that at the end she gains a noble dignity.

 

I had expected the soprano to possess a powerful but thrown-back vocal placement and “heavy” sound as many Russian singers do. Instead, though there are delicious dark notes and depth in that voice, it is balanced with a forward placement that keeps everything bright and every note spinning out seemingly effortlessly.

 

In “The Letter” aria, Nechaeva navigates the sudden emotional and musical changes, committing herself to every musical and dramatic moment and all sourced from the character’s thoughts. She starts, hesitating, then chases mentally a glimmer of love but soon moves into full throttle, then commits, willing to throw herself recklessly at Onegin to save her helpless, romantic heart. At one point, she runs headlong around the stage, scooping up leaves only to fling them high into the air (and they scatter behind her,) then throws herself to the ground and rolls down the steeply raked stage, blanketed in autumn leaves. Overcome by her own exertions and realizing such passion is dangerous, she dives down into smoky dark notes of intense doubt and melancholy, accessing a strong mezzo sound.

- Susan Galbraith, DC Theatre SceneRead the article

Anna Nechaeva’s Tatiana is glorious, with the recklessness of young love fully on display; with the fiery leaves of Autumn thick on the ground, when Nechaeva sings Tatiana’s immortal love aria for Onegin she gets to act out her impulsiveness, rolling and flinging leaves to show the conflict of joy and dread she feels.

- Andrew Walker White, DC Metro Theatre ArtsRead the article


Staatsoper Berlin - War Requiem - Soprano, June 2018

" ... während sich Anna Nechaeva beeindruckend aus der Chorschar heraus verausgabt."

- Der Tagesspiegel, Ulrich AmlingRead the article

Anna Nechaeva sang from within the chorus, giving her, too, a heightened, removed position from where her clear and melodious soprano projected over the orchestration.

- Bachtrack, Zenaida des AubrisRead the article

" ... with the exquisite and moving voices of tenor Ian Bostridge, baritone Matthias Goerne, and soprano Anna Nechaeva"

 

"When soprano Anna Nechaeva entered, the texture of her fluent voice at once lifted and lightened the martial sound of Goerne’s baritone, while adding a suggestion of fire and wailing."

 

- Opera Wire, Lois SilversteinRead the article

"Die Aufführung konnte mit drei hervorragenden Solisten aufwarten: neben der Sopranistin Anna Nechaeva ... "

- Klassik Begeistert, Peter SommereggerRead the article


Opera Vlaanderen - The Gambler - Polina, June 2018

L’on sort de l’opéra troublé aussi bien par la voix d’Anna Nechaeva que par le final visuellement magnifique où les jetons tombent du ciel comme des bombes.

- Toute la Culture, Yaël HirschRead the article

Die adrette Anna Nechaeva ist der Widerpart mit schöner und zugleich willensstarker Sopranstimme. Sie tariert die Launen und Gemütsschwankungen der Polina virtuos aus. 

- Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Frieder ReininghausRead the article

As Polina, Anna Nechaeva is a radiant soprano, clear and determined.

(Anna Nechaeva is als Polina een stralende sopraan, helder en vastberaden.)

- Klassiek Centraal, Lucrèce MaeckelberghRead the article

La palme revient cependant au général d'Eric Halvarson, [...] et à la dramatique Pauline d'Anna Nechaeva, brûlante dans les duos avec son amant joueur. 

- Crescendo Magazine, Bruno PeetersRead the article

Anna Nechaeva mit ihrem robusten, doch durchscheinenden Sopran hält deren Fühlen spannend in der Schwebe.  Immer wieder denkt man, mit ihr und dem zunehmend in Konfusion sich auflösenden Alexej könnte es doch noch was werden, aber dann schmeißt sie ihm herzlos die von ihm gewonnenen Scheine als Ablassgeld ins Gesicht.

- Klassiker Welt, Manuel BrugRead the article

Anna Nechaeva mit dunkelrot tim­brier­tem, loderndem Sopran als unglückliche Polina

- Die Tageszeitung, Regine MüllerRead the article

"... but especially the extraordinary Anna Nechaeva as Polina, who makes even the sentimental love duet with Aleksej at the end of the opera seem credible, until she shatters the illusion of it efficiently."

 

("...maar vooral de buitengewone Anna Nechaeva als Polina. Zij maakt dat zelfs het sentimentele liefdesduet met Aleksej aan het einde van de opera nog geloofwaardig lijkt, totdat zij de illusie ervan efficiënt aan diggelen gooit.")

- De Morgen, Stephan MoensRead the article

Anna Nechaeva excellently portrays the whimsical nature of Polina. 

(Anna Nechaeva zet de grillige natuur van Polina verder uitstekend neer.)

- Cutting Edge, Jan-Jakob DelanoyeRead the article


Pique Dame - Lisa, February 2018

Lisa - Anna Nechaeva, perhaps, one of the best performers of this party, who can be heard in the never-ending stream of "The Queen of Spades", one of the most performed scores in Russian, and the world opera theater. She is lyrical and ecstatic, sincere and passionate. 

- MK RU, Ekaterina KretovaRead the article


Berlin State Opera - Manon Lescaut - Manon, December 2016

Die junge Russin Anna Nechaeva singt die Titelheldin Manon Lescaut selbstbewusst und leidenschaftlich. Nechaeva zeichnet die Manon weder als schüchterne Klosteraspirantin wider Willen noch als Klunker-geile Luxusschlampe. Ihre Manon ist ein Mensch, dem die Sehnsucht nach Glück im Leibe steckt und der so jung ist, dass er nie gelernt hat, wie man Glück eigentlich festhält. Auch sängerisch entfacht Anna Nechaeva einiges an Feuer. Sie verfügt über ein charakteristisches Timbre (dem Metall die nötige Würze verleiht), die Höhe hat Kraft, Schärfe und Fähigkeit zur Expansion, und auch die Tiefe klingt jederzeit klar. Und im vierten Akt hat die Russin die Energie, Manon zur tragischen Heroine zu machen.

- Opern & Konzertkritik BerlinRead the article

Anna Nechaeva’s soprano is beautifully regulated, its dark chocolate colour and shimmering power coming through particularly in the middle to upper range.

- Hugo Shirley, BachtrackRead the article
