"[...] and opera studio member Karina Repova (Anna) demonstrated the international skills of the Rheinoper." 

Lust auf Düsseldorf, 21.12.2018, Anna Kennedy / Maria Stuarda / Deutsche Oper am Rhein

 

"[...]have not so much opportunity, to come to the fore with their flawlessly educated voices. Same for the splendid young alto Karina Repova as Anna."

"Five stars for Karina Repova."

Portrait by the German newspaper Berliner Morgenpost about Karina Repova

 

"Karina Repova, a young page boy, works wonders. Her already confident vocal mastery is magnified by a communicative enthusiasm."

Poly Magazine, 22.07.2016, Isolier / Le Comte Ory / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"But we prefered, maybe because of her more personal timbre, the page by Karina Repova, whose soft and long voice and slim silhouette should assure a sparkling future in the breeches parts."

Forumopera, 22.07.2016, Isolier / Le Comte Ory / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"Karina Repova elates as the page Isolier with her warm timbred mezzo and boyish acting. [...] Repova expresses wonderfully the lovesicknessof the young page with her soft middle voice. [...] Vlad plays convingly the womanizer, while Repova with wonderful amusing facial expression as Isolier does not really knows what is happening to her/him."

""Another clear drifty coloratura mezzo with youthful freshness made us sit up and take notice: Karina Repova as Isolier."

Der Neue Merker, 17.07.2016, Isolier / Le Comte Ory / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"[...] Karina Repova in the breeches part of the page Isolier with beautiful tinted mezzo [...]"

Pforzheimer Zeitung, 17.07.2016, Isolier / Le Comte Ory / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"And not to forget Karina Repova (Isolier) with elegance in phrasing and beauty in the timbre"

Giornale della musica, 17.07.2016, Isolier / Le Comte Ory / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"[...] The mezzosoprano Karina Repova, whom we heard very praiseworthy the day before in "Il Conte di Marsico", was also a very beautiful and lively Isolier"

Opera Gazet, 17.07.2016, Isolier / Le Comte Ory / Rossini in Wildbad

 

 

"[...] and it is mainly Karina Repova, who, in a trousers role of a young chevalier, is particularly promising."

Poly Magazine, 16.07.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"Her fiancé Gualtiero, Count of Nocero, was played with a pleasant soft tinting voice and boyish acting by the mezzosoprano Karina Repova."

Der Neue Merker, 16.07.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"Especially Karina Repova (Gualtiero) indicates with her elegance for phrasing"

Giornale della musica, 10.07.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"Repova has a soft mezzo and scores in the middle voice."

Online Musik Magazin, 10.07.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Rossini in Wildbad

 

"The six singers Mae Hayashi (Agnese, Contralto), Serena Sáenz Molinero (Chiara, Soprano), Karina Repova (Gualtiero, Mezzosoprano), Marina MJ Viotti (Lucia, Mezzosopraon) und Paula Sanchéz-Valverde (Maria, Soprano) not only have wonderful voices, but also convincing stage presence, which ends up in a spectacular final and knocks the audience's socks off. It is an opera which elates!"

Götz Bechtle, Bad Wildbader Zeitung, 10.07.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Rossini in Wildbad

 

 

"The latvian mezzosoprano Karina Repova assumed the role of Gualtiero and I have no doubt, that in future we will hear her on the stages of first theatres. The voice is beautiful, lyrical and luminous. It is a typical voice for Mozarts mezzosoprano roles and also the light and young Rossini repertoire (Rosina, Angelina, Elena...). She is a very expressive singer. Splendid! "

Ximo Wordpress, 10.04.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Teatre de Sarria Barcelona

 

"Stunning also the composition of Karina Repova as a warrior in a rebel look and her seductive voice, passing from bitterness to sweetness."

forumopera.com, 10.04.2016, Gualtiero / Il Conte di Marsico / Teatre de Sarria Barcelona

 

 

"In Bachs „Magnificat“ Karin Dahlberg provides with her full coloured soprano again for touching moments; the osculating voices of alto Karina Repova (instead of the sick Britta Schwarz) and the tenor in „Et misericordia eius“ do the same. "

Der Tagesspiegel, 23.12.2015, Alto / Concert / Bach Magnificat / Philharmonie Berlin

 

 

"Ilona Krzywicka, Hasti Molavian and Karina Repova harmonize beautifully as the ladies of the 'sternflammende Königin'."

Der Tagesspiegel, 09.08.2014, 3. Dame / Die Zauberflöte / Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg

 

"Larissa Alice Wissel sings the aria of Linda and gets a lot of bravos as well as Florian Hartmann and Karina Repova, who enchanted the audience with arias by Verdi and Mascagni."

Märkische Allgemeine, 20.04.2014, Concert / Bergsdorf
