“When Luisa Miller collapsed for the third time on stage, one could feel the tension in the audience: the spectators were already spinning around in their seats waiting for the moment when she actually “dies” and they will finally be allowed to applaud the great Klára Kolonits in the title role”
“The bright point of the evening was definitely Klára Kolonits in the title role. Her clearly resonant, powerful soprano sounded very evenly. The role bears literally no technical challenge for her, therefore she could concentrate on the expressive stage presence. She bulit up the character very believably: a loving woman, fighting for her love and then giving it up in an act of sacrifice.”

reviews

“You need very good singers for this piece. In the title role we heard Klára Kolonits: and again together with perfect role-building she sung wonderfully, absolutely musically. She was able to pass all the emotions of Luisa Miller to the audience and it was truly a title role that defined the whole performance.”

“The bright point of the evening was definitely Klára Kolonits in the title role. Her clearly resonant, powerful soprano sounded very evenly. The role bears literally no technical challenge for her, therefore she could concentrate on the expressive stage presence. She bulit up the character very believably: a loving woman, fighting for her love and then giving it up in an act of sacrifice. (…) It was worth to see the performance mainly for the protagonist singer blessed with wonderful voice in the person of Klára Kolonits.”

“Klára Kolonits’ Luisa is of completely different quality. She just mastered the part perfectly.”

“In this sense, the tragic heroines gain a privileged role, a combination of vulnerability and stubborn fidelity, despite some tortuous reactions. Klára Kolonits in the role of Luisa (…) manages to cope with churning male confrontations.”

“This performance just had to take place because of the Klára Kolonits’ Luisa. Voice and role, character and interpretation created a wonderful whole that evening for the public of Erkel Theatre. This Luisa is not only suffering, but she is also passionate, not only sacrificing, but a fighter as well. Kolonits can be counted into the small group of really great singers, in her newly found Fach we wish her a lot of good roles – and that we wish for ourselves as well.”

“The title role interpreter, Klára Kolonits, did a miracle: her healthy, powerful, perfectly balanced and beautifully refined soprano radiated through the whole evening, and while there is no technical challenge for her at all in all the vocal part, she could foucus her artistic energy not on singing out the notes, but on expression. Kolonits’ natural stage presence stays closer to the third act in which Luisa suffers and gasps from the poison, yet in the same time she was believable innocent young girl as well in the strikingly naïve aria (Lo vidi e’l primo palpito) from the first act. Then she made the role more and more rich and complex during the next two acts and in the end she was the one who made the show go on.”

“Not to mention Klára Kolonits whom we got to know already as she is a member ot Hungarian State Opera: She was particulary touching as Luisa Miller.”

“Klára Kolonits was exceptionally good.”
