Reviews & Press

 
 

Puccini - Il Tabarro - Lover, Gianni Schicchi - Lauretta, Suor Angelica - Suor Genovieffa

Demenkova's "O mio babbino caro..." was every bit as irresistible as it should have been 
 

- Eleanot Knight , Backtrack

The daughter, Lauretta, was superbly sung by the Russian soprano Inna Demenkova... Her sparkling soprano voice is very beautiful, the role is well suited to her voice and it was comical, without detracting from the beauty of the aria. 
 

- Monique Ten Boske , Place de l'Opera

Another of the most applauded singers was the soprano Inna Demenkova, also a Russian singer with an exquisite timbre, which she exhibited in the character of Suor Genovieffa in Suor Angelica. But her Lauretta, in Gianni Schicchi, allowed her to enjoy the only applauded interruption of the evening: the popular aria O mio babbino caro, which she sang with a perfectly calculated pout.

Bühnen Bern - Gounod - Roméo et Juliette - Juliette

Ian Matthew Castro as Roméo and Inna Demenkova as Juliette are the powerful-voiced couples in the centre. Demenkova has a robust, warm soprano with which she seemingly effortlessly climbs heights, both in the finest piano and in the expansive forte... Their four exuberant exuberant duets are vocally outstanding, and the couple does a lot of acting to fill the often sparsely equipped space.
 

- Martina Hunaiker , Der Bund

Nationale Opera Studio - Kings & Queens

The same goes for soprano Inna Demenkova. What a voice, what a charisma and above all what empathy she displayed once again. She already did this in several performances last year, such as in Ändere die Welt, but in Paradiso she sang so beautifully that the audience, which had long held back from applauding after every aria or duet, could no longer hold back after another beautiful aria ('Mi palpita il cor') by this soprano. Bravas and thunderous applause descended upon her!

Opera Forward Festival - Pedro Beriso / Mart van Berckel - Ändere die Welt!

Inna Demenkova first. What a phenomenal singer she is. A beautiful even, darkly timbreed, but crystal clear soprano voice, which technically can completely transform her entire pallet of colors, dynamic range and expression into singing that moves. Every scene with her was impressive. How many languages must this soprano think, translate and sing in? Russian (her mother tongue), German, French, back and forth...It didn't seem to hinder her from finding the right pronunciation for each piece, but above all the right expression. Her character, a mother with child who still seems to have hope for a better world and probably wants to fight for it, she portrayed credibly, movingly and vocally flawlessly. Let's hope she will be retained for the Netherlands for a few more years because the world's stages are her oyster!

It was, however, soprano Inna Demenkova who produced the standout performance. She possesses a strong stage presence with a voice that grabs the attention. Her portrait of the woman who is determined to create a better world for her son was convincing on every level. She was busily energetic in his interests, caring and emotionally engaged, oozing warmth and compassion to all the people around her. Her singing was vibrant, expressively detailed and lyrically appealing, with a beautiful clarity in her upper register.
