Maryna Zubko had great class.

 

Main-Spitze on July 6, 2019 regarding the Italian Night concert at Theatre Ruesselsheim
Bravos and applause were not merely given away by the audience in Ruesselsheim, but they immediately recognised the exceptional talent of Maryna Zubko (soprano), who performed steady coloratura in the mad scene of Lucia di Lammermoor. Zubko mastered quick transitions from lyrical passages to violent outbursts, colourful high notes and a warm-hearted charisma throughout.

 

Südkurier on June 10, 2019 about the concert in Immenstaad on Lake Constance
Zubko’s coloratura flowed effortlessly, her voice quivered with power and elegance, with depth even in her high notes. Especially her high „F“ in the „Voices of Spring” shined lavishly in the room.

 

Gießener Anzeiger on June 29, 2018 regarding the concert with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Theatre Giessen
Soprano Maryna Zubko kicked things off with brilliant virtuoso vocalises in the two movements of Reinhold Glière’s „Concerto for Coloratura Soprano and Orchestra op. 82“. Pure ecstasy. Her high notes were effortless, the coloratura ran like clockwork. Enthusiastic applause…
