Donna Anna (2014, Prague)
“Much was therefore expected of the performers. Best of all was the Donna Anna of Klára Kolonits, who has all the vocal allure, technique and temperament required for this fiendish role. She was focus of the eye and ear every time she was on stage (and knew it!), and she delivered her two big arias with considerable aplomb.”

She also blended well with Don Ottavio.”

“One simply cannot find any mistake in Donna Anna of Klára Kolonits. Actually we got used to the fact that whatever she touches, she performs it exclusively on high level, proving her versatility with new and new wonders. On that evening not only her shining, graceful coloraturas were in the focus, but also the role’s intense dramatism radiated through her voice and stage presence. (…) Donna Anna was just as strong, desperate and at time hysterical, as we expect her to be.”

“Another bright point of the evening was excellent Donna Anna of Klara Kolonits. Not only beautiful voice, bell-like and pure coloraturas and powerfully dramatic vocal interpretation of the artist was compelling, but also her fantastic stage performance. She portrayed an emotionally unstable, ready for anything, hysterical noble lady, who actually feels attracted to her uninvited night visitor, but is unable to cross her own borders.”

“Klára Kolonits was not only tremendously secure in singing this difficult part, but also passionately and fiercely took part in the Schrott’s game.”

“One can easily feel, that Klára Kolonits feels very secure in the role. The second aria was one of the climaxes of the whole evening.”

“Klára Kolonits enrichened the long line of her great productions in the last seasons with the current Donna Anna – it yet again proves her great singing technique and impressive stage presence: her energy inspires the singing partners as well.”

January 2012, Muzsika, Gábor Bóka

“Among the ladies it was surely Klára Kolonits in the role of Donna Anna who delivered an extraordinary production. Her bright, powerful voice sounded wonderfully also in the ensembles. With tiny, but memorable gestures she marked, that Don Giovanni’s “attack” meant more to her, that she is willing to narrate to her fiancé – and that the revenge for her father’s death is equally ardent to the passion awakened in her by the title character.”

“Klára Kolonits contributed yet again to the positive picture of her that we have. Wonderfully, with greath emotional depth she portrayed the noble lady.”

“We saw Klára Kolonits in the role of Donna Anna, she was singing beautifully with a great musicality; her Non mi dir aria was a bright point of the evening with its precise and virtuoso coloraturas.”
