Iwona Sobotka in the role of Pamina sang surprisingly powerfully, and it was certainly a good contribution to this character.
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.
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.
Iwona Sobotka, who made her debut as Mimi, has build up a moving artistic creation. Among the Polish soprano I had the pleasure to listen to in this role, Sobotka is definitely the best. 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.
