Den 2. Preis erlangt Slávka Zámečníková. In ihrer Arie „Nun eilt herbei“ aus „Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor“ von Otto Nicolai präsentiert sie einen glockenhellen Sopran, der bereits mit einer voluminösen Reife gefüllt ist. Die langen rezitativischen Anteile meistert sie gekonnt, ohne die Aufmerksamkeit auch nur für einen Moment zu verlieren. Das Glitzern ihres Kleides ist auch in ihrer Stimme zu hören. klassik-begeistert.de│4.12.2018

Werther│Prague National Theatre│Sophie

Slávka Zámečníková made her role and opera house debut as Sophie at the Prague National Theatre and the Slovak National Theatre with a great success! This beautiful Werther production by Willy Decker was premiered in 1996 in Amsterdam and since then has appeared in many leading opera houses including Frankfurt, Lyon, Rome, Barcelona, ect.

The cast holds up remarkably well under all this. Štěpánka Pučálková (Charlotte), Slávka Zámečníková (Sophie) and Jiří Rajniš (Albert) all turned in strong singing performances at the premiere…bachtrack.com │8.6.2018

Krásnym prekvapením bola Sophie v podaní mladej slovenskej sopranistky, v súčasnosti členky Operného štúdia berlínskej Štátnej opery Unter den Linden, Slávky Zámečníkovej. Vskutku krásny, tmavší lyrický timbre, zmysel pre vokálnu charakteristiku postavy, s jemnými dynamickými nuansami, vrátane éterických výšok v piane. Je to jeden z najväčších súčasných talentov a je šťastím, že aspoň touto cestou ju spoznala slovenská verejnosť i vedenie našej prvej scény.operaslovakia.sk│18.6.2018

Krásný vokální materiál předvedla sopranistka Slávka Zámečníková se zvonivým sopránem, který s lehkostí dosahoval nejvyšších tónů.operajournal.cz│10.6.2018

Slávka Zámečníková výchozí charakteristiku Charlottiny otravně veselé, naivní sestry Sophie vystihla přesvědčivě, a i ona potěšila moc hezkým hlasem, v půvabném kontrastu k Pučálkové pěkně prosvětleným. Pro roli dobře vybraná zpěvačka.Česká televize/Czech TV│9.6.2018
