Reviews, articles: "...Jana Šrejma Kačírková gave an impression as if she was born Anne Boleyn..." (Opera Plus, June 2013)
"Coloratura soprano with silver easiness, swiftness and flexibility, which Jana Šrejma Kačírková is able to develop into a dramatic force; it acquires homogeneity embracing the role of Anne Boleyn up to the three-line octave and timbres in the deeper and mezzo-soprano tessitura. The singer knows exactly what she sings about." (Thalia Award magazine 2013).
