London Britten Theatre - Ariodante - Dalinda, 2016

The other singer who stood out was Galina Averina as Dalinda. This young Russian soprano impressed me with her vocal flexibility and discipline in Giove in Argo last year. This year she has come of age, having developed her acting skills to match her vocal virtuosity. Of all the cast members, I would suggest Miss Averina is the one born to sing Baroque repertoire.

- Miranda Jackson, Opera BritanniaRead the article

Galina Averina sang and acted well as Dalinda: she was foolishly gullible but her naivety and regret won our forgiveness. Averina has a piercing shine at the top and sleekness throughout the range; her virtuosic cascades were impeccably even and smooth. 

- Claire Seymour, Opera TodayRead the article

soprano Alina Averina sailed gracefully through her arias as lady-in-waiting Dalinda.

- Michael Church, IndependentRead the article

The other voice that stood out for me was Galina Averina as Dalinda, whose soprano had a particular sweetness of tone unbroken by the needs of coloratura runs. Her eulogy to the evil Polinesso, "Del moi sol vezzosi rai," was particularly sweetly sung.

- David Karlin, BachtrackRead the article


Mid Wales Opera - Die Zauberfloete - Pamina, 2016/17

The casting’s the key. These are youngish singers, but they all have credible CVs, and three performances would stand out in any production: Sion Goronwy’s imposing and sonorous Sarastro, Galina Averina’s vulnerable, eloquently-sung Pamina and – as the Queen of the Night – Samantha Hay

- Richard Bratby, The SpectatorRead the article


English Touring Opera - Xerxes - Atalanta, 2017

This opera’s musical challenges are huge, and only Carolyn Dobbin (Armastre), Galina Averina (Atalanta), and Andrew Slater (Ariodate) properly rise to them.

- Michael Church, IndependentRead the article

As Romilda’s sister Atalanta, Averina is fun and flirty; like Riley, Averina does not emphasise villainy but depicts the spiteful behaviour that unrequited love provokes. Atalanta’s sheer audacity makes her strangely admirable.
