"[Ruxandra] Donose’s “Mi tradi” takes on a wild air, expressing Donna Elvira’s emotional trauma. Donose has a very strong background in French repertoire, so imbibes its values of intelligence and clarity. This enhances her feel for the fundamental elegance of Mozart’s style, even in an opera which should be as dangerous as Don Giovanni."

"Ruxandra Donose as Elvira ... striking “Mi tradi quell'alma ingrata,” which was vocally unassailable, breathtaking." (Musical Criticism, Feb. 20, 2012)
"The Donna Elvira of Ruxandra Donose was the most successful of the evening’s ladies, with rich tone, clean articulation and keen acting; her ‘Mi tradì quell’alma ingrata’ showed her to be one step from madness… or the convent."
