Focus on Puccini at Teatro Solís: La Bohème review from cult.news
"Soprano Mira Alkhovik made her debut in the role of Mimi. She unquestionably has the youth and voice of her character. Her vocal and stage performance was excellent...her half-tones, her expressiveness, her voice rich in colour and harmony were much appreciated by the audience.

Tenor Galeano Salas and Mira Alkhovik portrayed a moving couple, without ever going over the top, earning rapturous applause, particularly at the end of the first act."
