Reviews

“Prince Andronico was American tenor Andrew Morstein. On a solid, almost baritone foundation, it goes on to the second third, and fourth floor with bombproof heights and infallible security, even with the wildest interval jumps. One of these American tenors who seem to have no nerve at all: a successful test of talent”

Kurier

“Andrew Morstein stands out for his thick tone. The power of the vocals brings the warmth of his voice forward, which easily covers even the most demanding transitions between registers. His acting is completely committed … constantly singing at the top of his voice, his vocal virtuosity is evident”
