“Her art of singing is indisputable. Not only thanks to her great sense and feeling for music can she point out the music phrases naturally and smoothly, but finally there is a Czech soprano singer who is able to sing in beautiful, clear and natural Czech language.“

Ondřej Havelka

“Even though the whole evening was in fact a great show of wonderful, perfect and well mastered pieces, nevertheless, I do consider the two moments as the most important. One of them was the unbeatable performance of Pavla Vykopalová that she gave in her title role.“
