"Inspiring and Sincere…..
DUBRAVKA ZUBOVIC has the vocal qualities and a great artistic culture, which she places in service of spiritual expression. In irreproachably clear intonation, with warm colors end dynamics, equalizing diction and elasticity of her voluminous voice, she succeeded very suggestively to conjure all the power of the A. Dvorak's Biblical Songs opus 99."

"Carmen of High Qualities…..
The first impression the artist left on the stage has confirmed that she in her figure, appearance and performance wears all elements, which are usually associated with the name of a beautiful Spanish Gipsy. Her creation of this complex character, musically and theatrically presented the exceptional music event. DUBRAVKA ZUBOVIC possesses a sonorous mezzo -soprano, pleasant timbre with the great voice transformation capabilities.
Charming, on the stage very impulsive and convincing, she created Carmen as a Gipsy who likes glory and money, egocentric and mysterious woman."
