OPERA DIJON - FRANCE 2013/14
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 Der Neue Merker
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

WARSAW PHILHARMONIC 2016
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 Dijon 2013/14
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.
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.

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!

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