Reviews, articles etc:
"Michaela Kapustová playing Zaida, the Gypsy, was the more distinctive one out of two main female characters. Her clear mezzo-soprano fully filled the space of the Great Theatre very easily. The nomination for the Thalia Award 2010 for the performance of Angelina in Rossini´s Cinderella was not a coincidence and Michaela Kapustová will eventually get her glass award." (The Turk in Italy, J. K. Tyl Theatre in Pilsen, Hudební rozhledy 2012).
