“First, there is a wonderful and mostly unknown Hungarian soprano Klára Kolonits. Upon hearing her live for the first time last week I was immediately taken by the beauty of her wonder timber live. It’s such a luxury to hear a secure voice ring out with such passion and fire. “
“From any point of view we were listeners and spectators of an impeccable interpretation. Klára Kolonits is a perfect dramatic coloratura, who is not only absolutely secure singing the unbelievably difficult part, but is also able to depict the complex figure staggeringly, yet not hysterically.”

“First, there is a wonderful and mostly unknown Hungarian soprano Klára Kolonits. Upon hearing her live for the first time last week I was immediately taken by the beauty of her wonder timber live. It’s such a luxury to hear a secure voice ring out with such passion and fire. How she is not singing at the top houses in the world is a complete mystery to me? I’m always honest and candid with my opinion, and I would not say this if I wasn’t completely and utterly blown away…. But I urge everyone to check out her schedule and give her a try.”

“Klára Kolonits without any stage items and special effects is able to make us focus entirely on her: so the never-ending applause that remains even minutes after she has left the stage, is no surprise.”

“Klára Kolonits interprets the dramatic coloratua role from the coloratura side – nevertheless, the trills always burst out of her soul, there is absolutely nothing superficial in the interpretation. Her attitude and movements are radiating with nobleness and her suffering hits the hearts of the younger audience as well. They were listening with tense attention and then celebrated her with boisterous applause. Its reassuring how the genuine art is still directly and strongly moving for them as well.”

“From the second act of Hunyadi we get to see practically the whole story through the eyes of mother, Erzsébet Szilágyi, whose role is the most dramatic and the most gratifying. Mother worrying for her son is always credible, especially if the composer provides her with meaningful arias as well. We suffer with her and we admire her coloraturas. The audience rewarded both arias with rare, neverending applause; on that evening as well this was the case with Erzsébet Szilágyi. I appreciate Klára Kolonits not only in her arias, but also when she is listening silently to the king („your son is a murderer”) and I can see all the counterarguments running throuh her body, all the unspoken words. She has her honour, has her diplomatic skills, she keeps silent: but she does not hold in high regard the unsure monarch.”

“She is really good in this role, wins our compassion. The public appreciated her vocal production during both evenings, she got a lot of applause during the spectacle and in the end she was the most celebrated one as well.”

“We actually waited from Klára Kolonits that La Grange aria shall finally sound as it should in its beauty without any difficulties or limits. We are not disappointed, the artist shows fantastic coloratura skills, performing gracefully and brilliantly even the most beautiful passages.”

“From any point of view we were listeners and spectators of an impeccable interpretation. Klára Kolonits is a perfect dramatic coloratura, who is not only absolutely secure singing the unbelievably difficult part, but is also able to depict the complex figure staggeringly, yet not hysterically. During the performance the enthusiastic young audience put her in even bigger trial of strength – not knowing that the more difficult part of the La Grange aria is still to be sung they interrupted after the first one with a bursting applause.”
