Reviews: Prague

“As compared with common practice, Pavla Vykopalová is less dramatic, but has apparently studied the role in every detail, with meticulous cultivation of technique, and especially with expression precisely suited to the varying situations and dialogues.”

Hudební rozhledy | August 2013

Reviews: Brno

„But the genuine jewel of the production is Pavla Vykopalová as Mařenka. Until recently a mezzosoprano, Miss Vykopalová seems to have for ever switched to soprano roles, and her performance is excellent. Her voice is placed exactly in the right position, her softest pianissimos are perfectly audible, intonation, rhythm and expression are all excellent, and – no less importantly – the singer looks good. Hers is a truly young and lively Mařenka, certainly worth the efforts.“

Literární noviny | 10 April 2006 | Boris Klepal

„Pavla Vykopalová was a lively and ready-to-do-anything Mařenka, a girl who is unwilling to put up with everything, has a sense of humour and will even play some little tricks in order to achieve her goals. Hers was a full and silvery voice which the tenor Jaromír Novotný found difficult to match at the beginning of the show.“

Lidové noviny | 7 April 2006 | Helena Havlíková
