Freiburg Theatre - Jerusalem - Hélène, 2016/17

As Helene, Ania Jeruc excelled with brilliant attack, gleaming high notes, confident coloratura and contained intensity of expression.

- Opera Magazine March 2017 Rolf Fath

Vom lyrischen Kern bis zur Dramatik ungemein facettenreich präsentierte sich Anna Jeruc. Eine Sopranistin, die bis zur letzten Faser alles gibt. Wie sich diese Hélène ins Zeug legt, wie sie leidet: Das berührt.

- Badische Zeitung

Die polnische Sopranistin Anna Jeruc zeigt als Hélène die Zwischentöne, die der Regie fehlen. Auch wenn ihre obertonreiche, lyrische Stimme dramatischer wird, bleibt sie rund und perfekt geführt – trotz darstellerischer Herausforderungen.

- Südkurier

Allen voran Anna Jeruc als Hélène: Die polnische Sopranisten verfügt über einen echten Spinto-Sopran, lyrisch grundiert, mit fulminanter Durchschlagskraft in den dramatischen Passagen und den Massenszenen, sicherer Höhe, Agilität in den Koloraturen und ein wunderbar tragfähiges Piano, ein faszinierendes Singen in der mezza-voce Szene (Une pensée amère). 

- Kaspar Sannemann, Der OpernfreundRead the article

Sopranistin Anna Jeruc begeistert mit schwungvollen Koloraturen und dramatischen Aufschwüngen. 

- Rudolf Hermes, Der OpernfreundRead the article

»Anna Jerucs Hélène ist eine vokale Sensation: ein ganz eigenes, leuchtendes Soprantimbre, rund, ausgeglichen in allen Lagen, mit dramatischen Höhenraketen und einem kostbaren, substanziellen Piano, dazu trittfest auf dem Parcours der Koloraturen.«

- Opernwelt, 11/16


La Traviata - Violetta

Phenomenal, big-hearted performance by Anna Jeruc, who really lived the life of Violetta with fearless, touching, well sung moments...

- OPERA NOW

This is a triumph for Ania Jeruc. The audience said it all as she took her bow at the end, with numerous curtain calls. Performing here in her first role for Opera North, her soaring soprano is a joy to listen to, and she is physically perfect for the role. TShe is tall and slim, pale skinned and dark-haired, and her acting ability brings joy and pathos to the massive role of Violetta. I spotted more than a few hands move surreptitiously towards their eyes to wipe away a tear as the tragic story unfolds.

- YORKSHIRE MAGAZINE

Polish diva Anna Jeruc takes over the role of Violetta from Hye-Youn Lee, and this strengthens the production in several ways. While Lee made a sweet, vulnerable heroine, she always seemed too young and fragile for opera’s prima demimondaine. Jeruc-Kopec owns and understands the role; we believe she is a woman who, about to pay a cruel price for having devoted her life to pleasure, allows her final steps to take another, more profound, more noble path. She sings the doomed woman’s arias with passion and awareness, and her curtain call is rightly greeted with a resounding ‘Brava!’ from many quarters of the auditorium...Tonight's audience revels in the triumph of delight. Brava..."

- BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE - Martin Thomasson

Alexander Niclasson's Traviata at Opera på Skäret has one very strong card: the Polish soprano Ania Jeruc in the role of Violetta. As well as having strength and total control over her voice - not least in the murderous final aria in Act 1 - she also has a beautiful timbre and is the whole time immersed in her role. When she tenderly reduces the volume she doesn't lose any intensity, which is gloriously demonstrated in the Act 2 duet with Germont senior.

- Dagens Nyheter

The rare sunshine shone over the premiere-audience at Skäret on Saturday afternoon. And on the stage shone another brightly shining star. The Polish soprano Ania Jeruc is one of the best soprano voices I have heard live. And...she can act. She gives a heart-wrenching and very believable portrait of the courtesan Violetta Valéry.

- Nerikes Allehanda

But for once – just once – I was engaged here, by a Polish soprano called Anna Jeruc-Kopec who has a quality of voice beyond the reasonable expectations of a little show like this, and a theatrical intensity to match. The timbre of the voice is pearly, almost Gheorghiu like, with fierce attack and a generally secure coloratura. But above all, she's incredibly moving and dies so beautifully that for the first time ever (and I mean this) Violetta's last gasps drew a small tear from my tired old critic's seen-it-all-before eyes...

- Michael White - THE TELEGRAPH
