2016-07-16 MusicOMH, London
"The well-known rebuttal to Mussorgsky that the opera lacked a reasonably important female role proved well founded, but that did not stop Russian soprano Vlada Borovko making the most of her single scene as Boris' daughter Xenia. It would certainly be welcome to hear her assume more extensive repertoire in future."

"The plot is almost secondary as operas of the time were more about the music and performances than story. And being a baroque opera, arias abound. This gives the singers the opportunity to indulge themselves and their technique. All the cast are excellent but the standout was Borovko with the arias 'lo sperai di veder il tuo volto' and after Toante gives her an ultimatum and she fully understands the horror of her situation with 'Dite pace e fulminate". "

Borovko, nonostante la chiamata last minute ha dato un'ottima prova di prontezza e abilità scenica, un timbro dal colore chiaro e posato, qualche piccola sbavatura su alcuni passaggi difficili, ma sempre mantenendo salda la concertazione in un'emissione curata della voce. Gli applausi che hanno omaggiato questo cambio nottetempo dicono più delle parole.

"The Irish soprano Jennifer Davis as Ifigenia, reluctant priestess, and the Russian soprano Vlada Borovko as Oreste's wife, Ermione, give particularly fine performances that grow and grow in strength. Borovko, as a woman who turns left even on a life-boat, spins her early, pearly sound, as shiny as her nails and pert chignon, into something richly coloured as she overcomes the despot."

"Nobody had anything less than a good voice but – in my opinion – only three singers genuinely commanded the stage and particularly drew my eyes to them: Russia's Vlada Borovko, Australia's Emily Edmonds and England's James Platt. Singing in Czech and Russian admittedly did cause all of them to be thinking more about the sound of their words rather than their acting; whilst all those involved were obviously happier when later singing in Italian or German."

2016-11-14 Schmopera, London
"Soprano Vlada Borovko looked like Park Avenue had stumbled into Brooklyn as Oreste's wife, Ermione. She sang with a bird-like, clear-as-a-bell soprano that seemed perfectly naïve; her arias - excellently sung - spanned everything from understated and prayer-like to pyrotechnic and wild. The stakes didn't quite seem high enough for her character arc, however; the threat of rape by Toante felt luke-warm, and Ermione's turn on the violent leader felt less like a woman taking power, and more like the leadership's growing slack."

""Indeed, this Jette Parker Young Artist showcase is built around Vlada Borovko's Ermione (Oreste's Bradamante-like wife). I saw her in the 2016 Summer JPYA performance and in a small role in Boris Godunov earlier this year but neither prepared me for her Baroque chops. Her voice feels very natural in this repertoire and more intimate setting. Should she want to continue down this route, I predict an intense Alcina in her future. The public loved her in any case. There was much to love. The voice filled the venue just right and it felt to me like her understanding of singing Baroque is spot on, coupled with a vocal texture that just works with what the music asks (thus able to express a lot of fine detail). To give you an idea, through the night I was reminded of Piau"

Jette Parker Young Artists Summer Performance at Covent Garden

"Opening the programme with the Act II duet from Verdi's I due Foscari, Vlada Borovko confirmed my previous impression (not least in last year's JPYA performance and most recently in the ROH's L'elisir d'amore ) that she is a soprano of dramatic power and commanding presence, well equipped to master Verdi's surging vocal lines. She was a stirring Lucrezia, comforting David Junghoon Kim's Foscari when he learns of his exile and conveying the full fierceness of Lucrezia's love for her husband and fiery scorn for the scheming clique, the Council of Ten. Later, when the ensemble came together for the end of Act 2 of Don Giovanni, Borovko displayed similar concentration and intensity in Donna Anna's 'Non mi dir'."

"To discuss just a few of the particular standouts: Vlada Borovko was the first soloist of the night with Glinka's 'All was quiet', Borovko's voice was simply flawless, I cannot wait to see how her career progresses, definitely one to watch!"

"Thomas Atkins, Simon Shibambu, Vlada Borovko and Angela Simkin are agile and deftly blended in the madrigalian ensembles, as are Bálint Szabó and Krystian Adam as the Prince and the Abbé ."

"Borovko's shimmering coloratura had a steely accuracy and resolve that made it clear Ermione considered herself a cut above"

"Along with Vlada Borovko as Frasquita and Michele Losier as Mercedes, all four provided a welcome freshness to a sometimes pedestrian revival."

Vlada Borovko, 2013 
Don Carè to the rescue (ROH/Carmen)
2015-11-17 An opera notebook, London
"An especial mention must go to Frasquita (Vlada Borovko). A fairly small part, but really very wonderful - more noticeable from the front of the stalls than the back of the stalls circle, a commanding presence and really beautiful instrument. I anticpate her in Godunov and I might well plonk for Nabucco too."

Концерт молодых талантов Ковент-Гардена
2016-08-01 Operanews, London
"Впечатляюще был исполнен эпизод «Кати Кабановой», где Катерина – наша Влада Боровко – великолепно контролирующая верхние ноты, порадовала нас своим сверкающим тембром и ярким исполнением. В прошедшем сезоне она прекрасно исполнила роль Ксении в «Борисе Годунове», пела Фраскиту в «Кармен», а в марте дебютировала в «Травиате» как Виолетта."

In review: Mitridate, re di Ponto at ROH IN REVIEW: MITRIDATE, RE DI PONTO AT ROH
2017-07-02 Schmopera, London
"Some of the best singing of the evening came from Vlada Borovko, filling in for Albina Shagimuratova as Aspasia. She seemed utterly comfortable and confident, taking the stage with grace and fleshing out the vulnerabilities of her character easily. Her tone was round and plummy, yet incredibly agile and flexible. Particularly, her quiet singing was something to be remarked on - very well controlled, but it seemed to always be deeply felt. I kept thinking I'd heard her best aria, but then she would impress me again. She opened the opera with a stunning display of vocal fireworks and emotional intensity that was balanced best by the incredibly tender and astonishing "Pallid'ombre" in Act III."

"Russian soprano Vlada Borovko's performance of Ermione is particularly impressive, as she delivers complex ornamentation with clarity and precision, whilst simultaneously embodying her prim and proper character."

"The young Mozart made a point of writing very tricky arias to show off his talents, and Aspasia gets most of the very hard music. Her opening aria, Al destin, che la minaccia, would be demanding even for a seasoned professional, but Borovko pulled out all the stops and delivered that vaulting coloratura with flair. She was a bit quiet for the rest of Act 1, perhaps having exhausted her fire on that crucial first aria, but she came back in Acts 2 and 3. Visually she made a perfect Aspasia: poised, but young, gentle but proud. Of course, in this production there are challenges quite aside from the vocal ones: Aspasia has to negotiate a court mantua approximately six feet wide, which makes the flamboyant tonnelets worn by the 'men' look positively sane. Borovko was more than equal to the task: gliding around the stage like a porcelain doll, her emotions as constrained as her costume."

"Her friends Frasquita and Mercédès were strongly characterized by Vlada Borovko and Michèle Losier respectively, and Grant Doyle and Timothy Robinson made their mark as the two smugglers."
