TEATRO COLON - BUENOS AIRES 2017 - R. Wagner "Das Liebesverbot" (Brighella)

The Bass Christian Hübner shaped a Brighella full of humor, projecting easily with his voice over the complicated orchestration."Desde La Platea"

Also outstandingly dazzling, vocally and as a comedian, Bass Christian Hübner as a delicious Brighella.
„Ambito"

 


Projecting over the brilliant orchestra: Only the Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen and the two basses: the German Christian Hübner and the very talented Hernán Iturralde.
"La Nación"

 

Christian Hübner (German bass, début) did a convincing Brighella (maybe the most authentic buffo role), an arrogant policeman happy to arrest and judge... but he goes to the clandestine Carnival: the deep voice is also accustomed to the great Wagnerian villains (Hunding, Hagen).

"Buenos Aires Herald"

 


German Bass Christian Hübner (Brighella) demonstrated his powerful timbre, indeed effective.
"La Prensa"

"Mundo Clasico"

Vocally the most outstanding performance was left to Lise Davidsen, a Danish soprano who possesses solid vocal and acting resources to which we would like to hear at least one "Senta". Together with her, Hernán Iturralde as the corrupt "Friederich" excelled in voice and acting. The same applies to Christian Hübner (Bass) as "Brighella" the lieutenant of the Governor, which ends up falling in love with Dorella
"De Paraiso"

WARSAW PHILHARMONIC 2016/17 - R. Wagner "Tristan und Isolde" (King Marke)

 

As a youthful Marke, Christian Hübner sang with conviction and a powerful low register reminiscent of Matti Salminen. The resonant low B natural on “Mir dies” was a perfect example.

OPERA DI TRIESTE - Italy 2015/16 - R. Wagner "Das Liebesverbot (Brighella)

Great as well Tuomas Pursio as the cold and strutting Friedrich and Christian Hübner as the casual and cunningly clever Brighella.

Very charming, and also very well sung, Christian Hübner as Brighella.

TEATRO DE LA MAESTRANZA - SPAIN 2014/15 - R. Wagner "Götterdämmerung (Hagen)

 

 

Likewise, the evil Hagen is committed to a low tessitura base voice with serious and hefty singing, often difficult to interpret in the dense of orchestral texture, that accompanies their interventions; Christian Hübner, a singer specialized in Wagnerian roles, totally embodied this role. The public was very pleased!
Operaworld.es 06/2014

The three male base-singers dominate their characters ... the villain Hagen, played by Christian Hübner with huge black bass.
El Mundo 06/2014

As for the dark and tormented Hagen the powerful voice of Christian Hübner, strong enough to thunder in the theater and invoke his vasalls in one of the most spectacular scenes of the evening.
eclubexpress.com 06/2014

Hagen (a safe bet Christian Hübner), son of Alberich, who created the ring, deceives everyone until he finally drowned in the Rhine.

OPERA DIJON - FRANCE 203/14

R. Wagner - Das Rheingold (Fafner) - Die Walküre (Hunding) - Siegfried (Fafner) - Götterdämmerung (Hagen)

 

The hard-working Christian Hübner sang Fafner, Hunding and Hagen - a young but true "schwarzer Bass" of honoured tradition, and a singer who has the towering physique for all of those roles.

Opera Archive

 

Christian Hübner sang a magnificent, powerful Hunding and Fafner with intelligent acting. Here is a young Wagner talent announcing itself.                                                                             

Das Rheingold - Die Walküre, Opera Der Neue Merker

Christian Hübner was back demonstrating his versatility as Hagen in Götterdämmerung, completing a marathon effort of one role in each opera (Fafner, Hunding, Fafner again and Hagen). Hübner is a giant of a man whose physique is more suited to the giant Fafner than the dwarf-born Hagen, but both vocally and in acting, he proved a credible evil scheming genius.                                                                                                                 

bachtrack.com

 

Many highlights remained. My own favourite, probably idiosyncratically, was the dying Fafner, changed from dragon to his original giant form, telling Siegfried the story of what has happened. Christian Hübner sung elegiacally, with true nobility and strength, contrasting with Fafner's noisy bluster when in dragon form.

bachtrack.com

This ring leaves a very good impression, mainly thanks to four amazing singers: ...the impressive bass by Christian Hübner as Fafner, Hunding and Hagen ... It was not always certain in the past, that we have heard the main roles in Bayreuth in this quality.                                                                                                                            altamusica.com

... not only of tall stature, but especially of a great voice: Christian Hübner as Fafner, Hunding and Hagen with dark and powerful bass, theatrically brutal and calculating

WIEN/FESTSPIELE KLOSTERNEUBURG 2013/14 - O. Nicolai "THE MERRY WIFES OF WINDSOR" (Falstaff)

 

Among the soloists, especially the young german bass singer Christian Hübner as Falstaff stands out. Hübner´s Falstaff is powerful and substantial. The "Main Hit"  "Als Büblein klein ..." is mastered in a sovereign manner, a remarkable overall performance!

Kronen Zeitung 

And amidst this turbulent mix of musical comedy and opera Falstaff Christian Hübner was not only the anti-hero par excellence, but dominated the action on stage with his imposing height and its wonderful rich bass.
groops.at 

 

Christian Hübner, a bolt of man, who almost towered over his colleagues by a head, equipped the Sir John not only with an imposing voice, but also with the right amount of playfulness. He was really the pivotal point of this brisk "Verwirrspiel" and has repeatedly produced amusement in the audience.
