Einarsdottir gets good reviews for her performance in Donizetti's Elixir of Love

Thora triumphs as Adina at the Icelandic Opera

Thora sang and acted with brilliancy and elegance that is rarely seen on the Icelandic Opera Stage. The voice is robust and even of texture in all the range and her performance was impeccable; after 10 years of carrier abroad it may be no wonder, but I am not sure the audience expected the kind of triumph she won on Sunday. The Icelandic Opera MUST allow us to enjoy her art more often; It is clear that Thora is among our leading singers now and then.

Thora Einarsdottir sang the role of Adina brilliantly. She is a good actress with a beautiful voice and her quirky interpretation was absolutely right. Thora and Bjarni (Thor Kristinsson) reached such heights in their duet, acting and singing together, that we got a great "firework display"...Bjarni Thor og Thora Einarsdottir shine brightest of all stars in an otherwise quite clear sky
