“Jelena Kordic in the role of page Cherubino, clearly amorously attached to the countess, provided good clarity and projection.”
“Molto convincente Jelena Kordić nei panni di Zlatohřbítek: giovane appartenente al Junges Ensemble Semperoper, per ampiezza, qualità e precisione vocale sembra avere un futuro assicurato.”
“Mezzo-soprano Jelena Kordic in the character of the Fox also made a strong impression; she has an attractive voice!”
