Jennifer Ikeda’s presentation of Elisa transforms with the metamorphosis of this spoiled and unhappy princess. Elisa was born with the godstone embedded in her navel and is thus marked as the one person in the century who is destined to do great deeds for her people. When she is married off to a man in a neighboring kingdom for political ends, her pampered life ends. As Elisa tells her story, Ikeda infuses her with wonder and a range of conflicting emotions but also with an underlying strength that makes her transformation believable. She is at one moment a naïve, pampered princess and the next a strong queen facing mortal danger with assurance and conviction. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
