...Bele Kumberger as Gabriel filled the church with her clearest and sparkling soprano.
Conductor with audible visions, 01/14, R. Hanke
New year's concert with "musica assoluta" with powerful programme and wonderful soloist
... In addition to that, Bele Kumberger sang three Vivaldi-Arias with such defeating musicality and literally beguiling voice, that you wanted to listen to her much longer...Kumberger...thereby was always naturally and free inside, that her coloraturas never became superficial decoration, but always seemed to be expression of pure emotion. If baroque music could be sung like this more often! Also fascinating were the arrangements of the Gershwin pieces... Here, too, Bele Kumberger showed her vocal talent, you want to hear more from... If only more singers would have such vocal charisma!

"Carl Orff Festspiele Andechs" "Die Bernauerin"
...in the only vocal interesting Part, Bele Kumberger, also engaged as "Titelpartie" in " Die Kluge", made an impression in the challenging vocalises with bright and lightly led soprano.

"Carl orff Festspiele Andechs" - "Die Kluge"
...The only 25 years old Bele Kumberger...in the part of "Die Kluge" could unite marvellous appearance and all vocal advantages. Her bright soprano had both lyric warmth in the "Schlummerlied" and vibrant and silver, the charm of a "Rosenkavalier"-Sophie or "Capriccio"-"Gräfin" perfectly fitting sound, whereby she could convince as a character, which is capable of supernal love.
Who the power has: "Die Kluge" by Carl Orff at the "Festspiele Andechs"
...Everybody was outshone by Bele Kumberger as Kluge, hailing from Straubing: There were the conciseness of a prudent and the sweetness of a lover in her delicate acting and a up to the heights clear as a bell sounding soprano. Enthusiastic applause.
Culture/Short and Critical
Tough market: "Warten auf Mozart" at the Hanns-Eisler-Hochschule
...and Pamina is so intimidated by the jury, that her aria becomes a resigned awakening of a dreamer (Bele Kumberger with wonderfull intimate soprano)
...When glittering snow falls from the drawing floor, all participants immediately forget their activities extending greedy like children and Bele Kumberger, in "La Revoltosa" already noticed because of her enormous stage presence, has a dreamlike appearence.
