Her very first musical experience on stage was in the opera Brundibár by Hans Krása in which she sang the leading role Pepíček.

In 2016 she sang the role of Frau Reich in Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor by Otto Nicolai, in a production staged by Emmanuelle Cordoliani.

She sang Filippievna in Eugene Onegin by Tchaikovsky at the Verbier Festival. She made her debut on stage of the Royal Opera House in Carmen (Mercédès).
Very passionate about the Song and Lieder repertoire which she studied with David Selig and Anne le Bozec, she formed in 2015 a duo with pianist Florian Caroubi with whom she obtained the Mélodie Prize at the International Lied and Song Competition Nadia and Lili Boulanger in Paris. In 2016, they won the Grand duo prize of the International Vocal Competition in ’s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands – as well as the Junior Jury Prize, the prize for the Contemporary piece, the Dutch friend of Lied prize and the Press prize.
