Staatstheater Oldenburg - Suor Angelica - ANGELICA
Angelica MALGORZATA PAWLOWSKA was shown no mercy by her fellow sisters… the aria in which she longs to die was simply heartrending… It really got under one’s skin.
Der neue Merker 06/2024 – Gisa Habitz
Staatstheater Oldenburg – Il Trittico – SUOR ANGELICA
Malgorzata Pawlowska has a brilliant, versatile voice, with which she succeeds in impressively singing the title part in all its nuances and colors. Her final scene is simply heart-rending. First she takes off her nun’s habit , showing how much she hates the convent’s rules. For her visionary reunion with her son, the Polish soprano can do entirely without any form of pathos or sentimentality – she sings as plain and beautiful as possible.
DAS OPERNGLAS 6/2024 J. Gahre
„Malgorzata Pawlowska sings the part absolutely convincing and touching. Well- balanced both vocally and as an actress she performs the course of development of a initially hopeful and gradually desperating, suffering woman.”
Christof Keller PDF
„Malgorzata Pawlowska portrayal of Angelica is very impressive and she also convinces as an actress. Although her voice tends to be a bit sharp in the high registers, she perfectly succeeds in expressing the emotions of the character.”
Der Opernfreund
„In Suor Angelica the 10 person-cast of the nuns is tailored to the protagonist. The guest singer Malgorzata Pawlowska in the role of Angelica is a tailor-made singer-actress, who gradually soars from the immersions of misery at the beginning of the opera, into the deeply hurt, deeply lonesome nun Suor Angelica. Only until the dialogue with the Princess, she defends herself with vocal power and restrained opposition. Yet, the attempt to rebel is in vain. When she hears her child has died at the age of 5, without her being able to see it once again, her resistance, her power, her will to survive in the monastery community breaks. The central aria Senza Mamma, which Pawlowska makes oscillate between vision and reality, is the highlight of the score. Dreamlike! Nightmarisch!”
Theater Plauen Zwickau - Der Freischütz - AGATHE
„Malgorzata Pawlowska‘s Agathe and Elisabeth Birgmeier’s Ännchen were fitting equivalent counterparts...”
Theater Plauen – Manon Lescaut - MANON LESCAUT
„Malgorzata Pawlowska’s in the role of Manon expresses her love and suffering with an unusual straightforwardness in expression and a brilliant vocal clarity, which turns the performance into something absolutely brilliant.”

Theater Plauen - Zwickau - RUSALKA
„Malgorzata Pawlowska’s Rusalka impresses by her child-like, female appearance and her beautifully guided soprano voice, especially in the touchingly performed ‚Song to the Moon”

Theater Plauen-Zwickau – Rusalka - RUSALKA
"With light touch, Horst Kupich, opera director of the house since the beginning of this season, made his directing debut with Dvorak’s second last opera. He produced the fairy tale story of the mermaid, whose greatest wish it is to become a human being, that results in failing in loving and being loved. Malgorzata Pawlowska in the title role was entirely up to it. She convinced both vocally and dramatically as the teenager fed up with the Waterworld, who dreams about love and the prince, she sighted bathing, to conquer his world.”
Torsten Kohlschein, Freie Presse, 10.10.22
Theater Plauen-Zwickau – Ariadne auf Naxos - ARIADNE
„Not only acoustically this is pretty much interesting, because it actually gives the impression of the insanely difficult parts becoming a little bit easier and more effortless. This may also be due to the excellent basic level and the carefreeness of the ensemble, which is not far off the brilliance of major houses – to start Małgorzata Pawłowska, who portrays Ariadne with exactly such great virtuosity and floating easiness(...)”
A. Meixner, Das Opernglas 1/22
Clara Schumann - Sechs Lieder op. 13 - Theater Plauen
„This year Masayuki Carvalho composed an orchestral version, which was presented in concert by the soprano Malgorzata Pawlowska and the Chamber Orchestra under the musical direction of Leo Siberski. The soloist knew how to put together several songs into a whole. She sang with a crystal-clear voice, perfectly comprehensible at all times. Besides, she knew how to put highlights in every single song. The way the singer succeeded in getting vivid melodic from the wealth, congenially accompanied by the chamber orchestra, was simply enchanting.”
