Roberto Campanella, GBOpera 

“In this opera without any main roles, where the prisonners’ stories succeed each other on a practically equal level, one will take note of the beautiful clearness of enunciation as well as of the highly individualized voice timbres, especially in Andreas Jaeggi’s Skuratov. ”

Yannick Million, altamusica.com 

“Andreas Jaeggi offered up for the role of Mime his forceful steel like tenor voice in a playful but precise characterization, both actingwise and vocally.”

Marcello Paolino, Der neue Merker 

“Andreas Jaeggi propose un impayable Comte, aussi vieillard dans sa réjouissante caricature que juvénile dans sa claire vocalité.
[Andreas Jaeggi offers us a priceless interpretation of the Count, being as agedly ripe in his delightful caricature as he is juvenile in his vocal clarity.]

Maximilien Hondermarck, Forum Opéra 

“In particular, Swiss tenor Andreas Jaeggi played his roles of Inspector and Dream Clerk to the utmost.”

“Le ténor Andreas Jaeggi assure de sa voix puissante le difficile rôle de Goro.
[Tenor Andreas Jaeggi confidently assumes the difficult role of Goro with his powerful voice.]

Helene Kuttner, Pariscope 

“Alberich’s brother Mime was humourously portrayed by Andreas Jaeggi in a cunning, underhanded and slimy way, covering his part perfectly actingwise as well as having impeccable transitions between full singing voice and Sprechgesang (speech-song).”

G. Schunk, Das Opernglas
