She has also intensively devoted to interpretation of Baroque music (J. Ph. Rameau, H. Purcell, F. Cavalli), mainly with the ensemble Elyma, with which she has recorded numerous CDs.
She has sung regularly at the Baroque music festivals in Ambronnay and Fontevraud. In the 2003/04 season she was a member of the International Opera Studio in Zurich, performing in, for example, Rossini’s opera La pietra del paragone, and in 2004 she sang the role of Ottavia (Monteverdi: L'incoronazione di Poppea) with Les Arts Florissants under William Christie (Opéra de Lyon).
In 2008 she performed as a guest in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Opéra de Nice. In the same year, with the ensemble Collegium 1704 and under the baton of Václav Luks, she sang Maddalena in Jan Dismas Zelenka’s oratorio I Penitenti al Sepolcro del Redentore, which they recorded for the French label Zig-Zag Territoires. In the spring of 2009 she is scheduled to portray the title role in Händel’s opera Rinaldo at the National Theatre in Prague and in the following year at theatres in Caen, Rennes and at Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg.
