Opernglas 2/2018 , E.V. Gerke
Ralitsa Ralinova’s play was also fun. The soprano, who already convinced as GILDA turns Gretel into a charming, girlish character. Moreover, her singing is exemplary and certain in the upper registers
Der Neue Merker (01/2018) - Christoph Zimmermann
…and the soprano Ralitsa Ralinova alias Gretel, who apart from her excellent acting also succeeds in granting the main character every possible vocal benefit.

Ralitsa Ralinova sings Gretel with a sweet, innocent soprano voice...

The singing was just fabulous: One can hardly imagine a better cast for Hänsel and Gretel as Catriona Morison and Ralitsa Ralinova with their young, exuberantly brilliant voices.

Vereinigte Bühnen Wuppertal –Rigoletto - GILDA
The same goes for Ralitsa Ralinova, who emphasizes Gilda’ schizophrenia with nervous gestures and yet sings with enchanting sweetness and brilliant staccati.

Wuppertal Opera House- Don Giovanni - ZERLINA
Ralitsa Ralinova and Damien Pass as Zerlina and Masetto made a vocally and actingly convincing performance.With her youthful soprano voice, Ralitsa Ralinova gives the peasant girl a naive simplicity, as she ist taken in by Don Giovanni's courting Then again she plays the role with coquetry, as she succeeds in calming her jealous broom.

Bamberg Summer Opera - Don Giovanni - ZERLINA
'Ralitsa Ralinova (Zerlina) brought her gracious soprano voice into play (like in „Batti, batti, o bel Masetto“ and in the mincing duet with Don Giovanni, „Là ci darem la mano“)...'
Bamberger Onlinezeitung
www.bamberger-onlinezeitung.de
'Is it possible to even more seducive as the greatest seducer? It is! Ralitsa Ralinova as an artistivcally overwhelming Zerrlina made prove of it in the premiere on Saterday at the bamberg Summer Opera. Ralinova's refined, continually intense and technically ideal focussed voice enthralled just as her souvereignity as an actress . Compared to her, even the Jiri Rajnis in the title role faded somewhat. I think Ralinova is in for a great carreer.'
