The arias by Prokofiev and Mussorgsky suggest Domashenko, still just 27, is already a dramatic mezzo of the first order. Her manner is sometimes a little strident and unsubtle, but her voice is warm, robust and flexible, and her Carmen, Orlofsky and Azucena promise a thrilling future. Claire Wrathall
