Reviews & Press

Verdi - Quattro pezzi sacri - Soprano

Le Te Deum conclut superbement la soirée avec l’utilisation de tout le chœur et l’orchestre, ainsi que, dans les derniers instants, l’apparition d’Iwona Sobotka, dont le timbre angélique est renforcé par le placement de la soprano en haut du premier balcon derrière le public.

Verdi - Requiem - Soprano

La soprano Iwona Sobotka tuvo momentos de brillantez, cumpliendo sobradamente el cometido.

introdujo unos pianísimos bien cincelados en los momentos precisos y unos agudos cargados de metal que le permitieron sobresalir ante tanto decibelio

la soprano Iwona Sobotka chante quelques passages en force dans le suraigu, mais nous fait rendre les armes par son interprétation bouleversante du Libera me conclusif, aux envolées aériennes et déchirantes.

Berlin Komische Oper on tour in Australia & New Zealand - Mozart - Die Zauberflöte - Pamina

Pamina, sung beautifully by Soprano Iwona Sobotka on opening night. She played the heroine-in-need-of-rescue to perfection, but despite the sexism spouted by some characters, Pamina showed courage, determination and integrity. That said, she does fall into despair when she believes she is no longer loved by Tamino, and Sobotka sings Pamina’s aria with great feeling as she contemplates suicide.

The performers, led by Polish soprano Iwona Sobotka playing Pamina and supported by the WA Opera and WA Symphony Orchestra, were not deterred by the extravagant production, but revelled in it.
