Komische Oper at Budapest Festival - Die Zauberflöte

Iwona Sobotka as Pamina presented perfect technique paired with natural playfulness. Just as Papageno, she was also able to feel the intention of the stage director. Not only her vocal production was impressive, but also with her stage presence and acting. She was able to paraphrase the star of silent cinema, Claudette Colbert.

- IZABELLA ANDREA, IZA SZINHAZBAN JARTRead the article

Iwona Sobotka in the role of Pamina sang surprisingly powerfully, and it was certainly a good contribution to this character.

- Privatbankár.huRead the article

Iwona Sobotka was the star of the evening, her full, luscious soprano a treat to hear: her heartrending “Ach, ich fühl's” was one of the highlights of the evening.

- Bachtrack, Orsolya GyárfásRead the article


Schleswig Holstein Musik Festival - Turandot

The most beautiful voice of the evening is the one of Liù by Iwona Sobotka. Her quiet emphasis of the lyric is just touching, her delicate vibrato and her floating Piani testify of the devotional love of a slave to her Lord.
 

- Die Welt, Peter Krause


Opera Podlaska - La Boheme

It is a fantastically composed duet, and is fantastically sung by Andrzej Lampert and Iwona Sobotka, he has in himself - and in this creation - a lot of grace, perfect for an bohemian role. She is modest, delicate but strong. But after a while both of them shows that they possess powerfull voices.

- Moniki Żmijewska, Gazeta Wyborcza

She delighted with her warm, flexible voice showing with great ease the emotions of its character, moving in the IV act the audience to tears.

- Opera Lovers, Magdalena Grzybowska
