She won the Literary Fund Prize twice in a row for her performances of the roles of Amore (C. W. Gluck, Orfeo ed Euridice) at the Slovak National Theatre and Despina (W. A. Mozart, Cosi fan tutte) at the National Theatre in Prague. She has given highly successful guest appearances at the Polish National Opera in Warsaw, on Italian opera stages in Como, Brescia, Pavia, and Cremona, and in France in Nancy, Angers, and Nantes. She has performed in concert in Qatar, Stockholm, Sarajevo, and at the Prague Spring Festival. With the National Theatre in Prague, with which she collaborates regularly, she has toured Japan in a production of Mozart’s Magic Flute, singing the important role of Pamina. At the National Theatre in Prague she has performed roles including Zerlina from Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Despina from Cosi fan tutte, and the Flower Girl from Wagner’s Parsifal. In 2017 she sang the role of Mirinda from Vivaldi’s opera Arsilda as the only Slovak performer taking part in winning a prestigious Slovak award, the Doska Prize, for the best performance of the season. With the same opera company, she has also performed on European stages in Luxembourg, Lille, Caen, and Versailles. This April she appeared at an opulent concert with José Carrerasem at Prague’s O2 Aréně.
