Über Bratislava und Berlin führte der Weg der Sängerin ins Haus am Ring. Zámečníková besitzt eine wunderbar lyrische Stimme mit brillanter Höhe, Flexibilität, Wärme und Strahlkraft.

Slávka Zámečníková gab als Norina ihren höchst gelungenen Einstand an der Staatsoper, wo sie in dieser Saison auch Musetta, Gretel und Frasquita sowie Poppea singen wird. Ihr Sopran ist von bemerkenswerter Klarheit und Reinheit, schon im „Quel guardo il cavaliere“ stellte sie sich neckisch, für sich einnehmend und mit mühelosen Höhen vor, auch später gefiel sie mit herrlichen Koloraturkaskaden und Spitzentönen. Diese Norina ist attraktiv und gewieft zugleich, sie wird Malatesta zur idealen Komplizin. Die Presse│14.10.2020
