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 Dijon 2013, Der Neue Merker 11/2013

 

 

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.

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.

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.                                                                                                                          Der Ring des Nibelungen, Opera Dijon, 2013, altamusica.com 10/2013

 

 

Linda Watson as Brünnhilde ... with steely voice, clear diction and great personality dominated the performance. Brava!
With Christian Hübner debuted a young singer with a dark, sonorous bass as Hagen.

Christian Hübner as Fafner, Hunding and Hagen is a basso profundo, black-colored as you wish for it.

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!
