Reviews

“[…] la soprano Zuzana Markovà est assurément une Marianne évoquant celle à laquelle on pense en lisant Musset. La clarté de sa diction et la précision de son émission concourent à lui en donner le caractère, et si l’on regrette des aigus un peu durs, on peut aussi les entendre comme l’incapacité du personnage à aimer vraiment.”
Fabrice Malkani, ForumOpera.com

“Convince la Elisabeth quasi spaurita di Zuzana Markova, la quale ha dalla sua mezzi vocali importanti ed una tecnica impeccabile, oltre che un’intelligenza interpretativa non comune.”
Alessandro Cammarano, OperaClick

“Frizzante e spigliato l’Oscar del soprano Zuzana Marková, giovane interprete verdiana, la cui voce scivola con sicurezza nelle peripezie canore Un ballo in maschera del personaggio en travesti, e la cui grazia francese ricorre per tutta l’opera ad alleggerire il tono tragico della vicenda (“Volta la terrea fronte alle stelle”).”
Elisabetta Ragusa, GB OPERA

 

“Zuzana Markova démontre à nouveau la maestria technique et interprétative qui nous avait ébloui dans La Traviata sur la même scène. Belle à voir et bonne actrice, elle conserve au personnage sa noblesse intrinsèque, en dépit d’une image de grande bourgeoise plus digne de Marcel Aymé que d’Alfred de Musset, et, cerise sur le gâteau, sa diction du français est excellente!”
Maurice Salles, ForumOpera.com

“La distribution réunie à Metz est dominée par la soprano colorature tchèque Zuzana Markovà, Marianne gracieuse et distante qui se joue des aigus stratosphériques écrits pour Lily Pons.”
Gérard Condé, Avant-Scène Opéra
