performed so far, because they mostly act
directly without any hypocrisy, trying to live
their lives in full."

"Her art of singing is indisputable. Thanks to her great sense and feeling for music she is able to point out the music phrases naturally and smoothly, but finally we have a Czech soprano singer who is able to sing in natural Czech language beautifully and clearly."

Ondřej Havelka

"Even though the entire evening was in fact a fantastic show of wonderful, perfect and well-mastered pieces, nevertheless, I do consider two moments as the most significant. One of them was the unbeatable performance of the title role given by Pavla Vykopalová."
