[…] Dazu [Penelope] passt der dunkel timbrierte Mezzo von Jordanka Milkova perfekt, genau wie sie die würdevoll Wartende, die alle um sie Werbenden stolz abblitzen lässt, überzeugend verkörpert. […]

[…] Doch könnte die Oper nicht auch schlicht „Penelope“ heissen? […] An diesem Abend könnte Monteverdi „Ritorno“ auch den Namen einer Titelheldin tragen, weil Jordanka Milkova mit ihrer profunden tiefen Stimme und ihrer vornehmen Ausstrahlung als Königin von Ithaka, ja: königlich wirkt. Wunderbar ist nicht allein ihr Lamento im großen, doch viel zu leeren Bett auf der Bühne. Schlicht ergreifend ist alles, was Jordanka Milkova allein und zusammen mit ihrem Stückehemann macht. […]
