During her studies she sang the parts of Cinderella in Martinu’s Comedy on the Bridge, Angelica in Puccini’s Suor Angelica or Mařenka in Smetana’s Bartered Bride. She made her debut also with the role of Mařenka in the Moravian theatre in Olomouc, based on which she was then offered the part of Vendulka in Smetana’s The Kiss (2015).

In 2014 she sang the part of La Folie in a comic opera Platée by a French baroque composer Jean Philipp Rameau at a famous Znojmo Music Festival and gained a wider Thalia award nomination for that role. She returned to the same festival in 2016 as Zerlina in Mozart’s Don Giovanni alongside Adam Plachetka.
